Swing low, Sweet Chariot

#RIP Jasmine Maria Lewis

When I go down
I go down far
Under the ocean floor
Way below the dreamy bar
Set too high for me
You flew highest
So we could see
Stray bullets in the sky
Killing our whys
And floating
Caught by the wind
You survived
Your purpose alive
While I fall low
Until I wake up
To what we both know
It’s dusk
And in just one more night
I’ll go.
