The Mark of Eternity

                         I saw a face

                              I thought I knew

                                     disappear into the crowd.

                        I saw a face

                              I knew was me

                                     and then it was gone,

                              Into a wave of humanity

                                     and they said

                                          I was mad,

                        But tell me, is it you or me

                                     or have we all

                                           been had?

                        And maybe when the nights are long

                                 and the soul’s whisperings grow loud

                        And we know not if it’s light or dark

                                 or if it’s up or down

                        The faceless face I thought was me

                                 is also you and you

                        for all faces on the earth reveal

                                the mark of eternity.
