A Chance to See


Born to me a vision from afar
You emerged from a longing
Awakened as from a deep dream
A vision of my world renewed

Taken by the light in your smile
Could never go back, the past reconciled
You reached out with your hand
No obstacle to discourage you

You cast your doubts upon the water
Sown out to sea, gathered up by the gloom
In your life you sacrificed
You were always committed

With a cleared-eye vision
You had a true instinct
For what was beautiful
You lived on the other side of silence

I was showered by this brightness
You revealed in me something more solid
Through your radiance I have grown
I love you for giving me a chance to see.

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
