The Stone

I came upon a lonely stone
that caught my inner sight
looking like a mountain
it was so bright

It gave me a feeling of being alone
so I took it into my home
we each had what the other lacked
but soon the stone began to crack

Lonely I am but more I’ll be
if I’m not by the water
beneath the tree

So I took it to where it came before
built a new house along the shore
beneath the tree the stone would shine
and light my house for all of time
