I know it’s near, the sky has cleared up.
The banter can be heard, the kids are bellowing .
The shift of the dust, and the grief of the night.
I did not hear from you, I saw it coming, didn’t I?
When you were with me, I took the moment for granted.
I wasn’t clever then, when you pursued my soul.
The truth is unfathomable now, no one cares anymore.
Your love, I carry in my heart, the brunt I bore all along.
I never asked why, regret fills my mind.
The walks, hand in hand, under the clouds, the rain, come what may.
They are all gone, with the holidays.
