I paused for a moment
To look at the carved face
And it gave me a chance
To hear my own heartbeat

The trees and the stones
Were born to outlive me
Yet without my observance
Would they exist in this place?

Shape and shadow
Lightfall quantum interplay
Form a persistence
That I might walk in this way

I paused for a moment
To look at the carved face
And it gave me a chance
To know my own heartbeat
