I Knew An April Once.

 

I Knew An April Once.....

I knew an April way back then,
her eyes were like the rain,
all misty blue they deeply held
her dreams and every pain,
she begged me to remain,
and keep our world the same.
Her lips were temptresses
they beckoned like two tulip petals
oh how they quivered when we kissed
my heart took hours to settle,
My blood was molten metal.

But then came May, a lovely lass
she stole my soul and ran
across green fields of dandelions,
you see she had a plan,
for me to be her man,
Her back was warmed from early sun,
she snuggled close to me,
and in her whispered promises
I heard eternity,
but it was not to be.

For June stretched lazily  around
my soul with her embrace,
she offered days that had no end
with joy I kissed her face,
in that summer loving place.
We walked across the hazy heat
that rose like passions fire,
and I swore I would stay where her,
love always took me higher.

Then Autumn with her tawdry laugh
and multicolored dress,
put spices in each kiss we shared
I swear she tasted best,
I hardly got much rest.
She'd blow across my limbs
stripping me bare and tumbling down,
she'd rake her nails across my back,
then leave me there spellbound.

The memories of these past loves
that I've known as time floats by,
have carried me through winters blasts,
when blizzards fill the sky,
and fires warm my sighs.

For it is then I understand
as white flakes fill the land,
that I will be a lonely man,
till I mark dates with Jan.
