Autumn Sun

My youth stood by the harbor
Her hands set in a wave
Like no more evening and day
Now I see the beauty I failed to see when she was me
Life undress me of her, step by step
Like a silk dress, she fell to my feet

She brought me flowers
Said she liked my work
I thought she couldn’t do us any harm
He never liked that kind of charm
But how could he resist
When her dress let in the autumn sun?

I used to watch the sparrows
Perched on electric wires
Like notes of a song waiting to be sung
For you, I wrote them down
He laughed at life that kept me sane
In a world of dark dark games

She brought me flowers
Said she liked my work
I thought she couldn’t do us any harm
He never liked that kind of charm
But how could he resist
When her dress let in the autumn sun?

She watered the garden and played with the kids
For her birthday, let her try on his wedding ring

She brought me flowers
Said she liked my work
I thought she couldn’t do us any harm
He never liked that kind of charm
But how could he resist
When her dress let in the autumn sun?
