Get Rid Of The Advertisements

Just Another Country Sad Song
 





There doesn’t seem to be shadows where this story ends.
There is only light in this book,
Where my bright May
Walks hand in hand
With your fearsome December.
Yet here am I, spewing out tears faster
Than a daddy long legged spider
Who is spinning his heart out,
While flying high on speed

You tell me, don’t fight it
As you pen in your exit
And you tell me your tale is done
And now you say you’ve nothing left to tell me
So what is it that keeps me here yearning
To see you still writing your words again
When all you are longing for now
Is just to be free?

Don’t even ask me to ever forget you
I beg you. Leave me this book open
Don’t begrudge me as I sit here and read this,
While watching your shadows disappearing.
I’ll try to do as you wish,
But how do you hug
A memory
That has already faded,
And has now left you behind?
If I do let go, will you promise always
That you’ll still let me love you?
Will you continue to write in the margins
Of my mind?

The story has ended.
A drop of rain has fallen
Too soon it is morning
And because you say nothing,
Daylight comes
Without any warning

And is that you, love?

I don’t see so well, sitting here in this dark
And is this the page
Where you write me your last chapter?
Well never mind, I know I can do this
Because in my heart, it will always be light
And because I know that...

I know that this is
Just another
Country
sad song,
Written at 4 am, in the night.



Written and composed for…

“a drop of rain”


(again, this is just my muse, folks. Dear Old Don hasn’t left me. He’s out in the back yard playing in his garden).
