The World is Full, draft no. 2

Lord, John was right when he said that the whole world

would not be able to contain the books

should all be written

about you

For even today on the first of December

I have not been able to stop speaking words from you

as if by dictation

If I never say another word, that is enough for me

But think of all the words that all the people in the world have spoken

and imagine what it would be like if every single sigh of those

were breathed first from above

I want that kind of world and I can see it in your love

There are so many books yet to be

As I look around

I don’t worry if there are enough trees

because the books are you and me

and I know “so will it be”
