As A Child

Olden days have been washed away

Amber waves in sundown haze

One last call on the eve of fall

Leads us down a distant maze

———————————-

The way back home has come overgrown

The path we knew has been gone for years

With failing feet I search the sand beneath

Reeds so choked they whisper names

——————————————-

And I cry, and I cry

To the gulls in the sky

Please don’t leave me on the shore

Cause I’m sure if I tried

I could learn not to lie

And you’d see me as a child

———————————-

And Emily, Emily is lost at sea

She calls to me, calls to me, and I retreat

And all alone we sit at home beyond belief

As we try to fight the thorns that bite as we bleed from the weeds

——————————————————–

Leaves close in as the vines wind round

Trees reach forth and snuff the light

And I hear her say, through distant waves

“Please just stay here with me”

————————————-

And I cry, and I cry

To the gulls in the sky

Please don’t leave me on the shore

Cause I’m sure if I tried

I could learn not to lie

And you’d see me as a child
