He Left Me With A Song (poem)

It was early I recall

If I know a thing at all

When I beckoned to his call

My name’s written on some wall

-

He was pleasant and polite

But in truth no appetite

Or my truth was not quite right

For this time there’ll be no fight

-

For this your time come walk with me

Your time here is finally done

From all this you’re finally free

Your new life has finally begun

-

I woke up I think at dawn

To a window I was drawn

Something’s different they are gone

In my mind a cloudy song

-

It would take some time to set

No grave here for false regret

Just a walking testament

A bit harder to forget

-

For this your time come walk with me

Your time here it won’t last long

From all this a chance to see

Your new life when this one is gone

-

Every morning out I go

Things like me put on a show

Without feelings we don’t know

If your truth is really so

-

For this your time come walk with me

Your time here will soon be through

From all this then you’ll truly be

Your new life is all about you
