They stood at the edge of the world 

They stood at the edge of the world 

& opened a small container

Inside a light and a song

Inside all the questions

And all of the answers

Inside all the noise

And all the silence

How could something so small and simple

Something at the edge of time and space

Hold everything

& hold nothing

Here at the edge of the world

Everything and Nothing

They stood at the edge of the world

They stood at the edge of the night

They stood at the edge of the light

They held to the box

Of everything

& nothing at all

Somewhere

On this sphere

In their hands

Meaning

Abides


She stood at the edge of the world
