Auburn Days

I really hate to bother you

I know that you would want me to

If you knew I was lost

—————————————–

Don’t come this way to often now

Days in a haze are bleeding out

And gone to the shores

—————————————-

The age has laid upon your face

Your movements slow, a careful pace

Guides your feet along

Your mind is all that’s so strong

——————————————————–

And you’re worried now that I’m over-drawn

With breathless words to hang upon

And you’re gone

————————-

Time will find us all

Leave me while I’m strong

Golden days to bronze

To auburn, then they’re gone

————————————-

Simple words, so indescript

Hard to place between your lips

And move them along

——————————-

Subtle shifts in finger tips

Hold the pen in your weakened grip

And guide the line along

Your mind is still so strong

——————————————————–

And you’re worried now that I’m over-drawn

With breathless words to hang upon

And you’re gone

————————

Time will find us all

Leave me while I’m strong

Golden days to bronze

To auburn, then they’re gone

————————————

You’re counting down

Have you made your peace?

Have you brought to light

What was underneath?

And I’m not ready now

To let you go

And I’m so frightened

To be left alone

So don’t go

——————————–

The sky is finally softening

The night fails so reluctantly

But soon whispers away

————————————

We are warm within our beds

Sky alight in gold and red

And gently to blue

————————————-

Place your feet upon the floor

As you did the day before

And let your life unfold

To continue is to be bold

——————————-
