I am the dust beneath your feet,
And you, the brightest star in the sky;
I am lying here helpless and weak,
While you shine up above, so high.
In every grain, in every speck,
There is a feeling in my heart;
Where love resides, nothing else,
But we are two worlds apart.
Heed my prayers, listen to my pleas,
Do not ignore my call;
We have the chance to meet midway,
Yet you wont have to fall.
Maybe I expect too much,
But even a grain of dust can aspire;
Can we not be together?
Is it not what you desire?
And so this bit of dust swears,
Lest this love drives him mad;
That he shall cherish you, oh heavenly being,
And live the dreams that he had.
