I saw you look,I saw you stare
You liked the colour of my hair.
I heard you speak,I felt less bleak
Now I sit near where you were.
I held your hand, on Southwold sands
Your hand was warm,who understands?
Your time was up,you won the lot.
I gave your grace to those forgot.
I rode my bike,St Giles was dark
A car hit me and I saw sparks.
You knew my name, we were the same
I saw real stars, when shot by car.
I saw a hand turn in the sand
Life is a film and love’s the bond.
Your trust complete,I was your sweet
The end is here; it’s no defeat.
For life’s a tale we won’t bewail
You write along the hidden trail.
Your narrative can no more live
You were yourself.,no more to give.
We knit the fabric for the young
And with this gift our song is sung
The melody, sonorous be
For life is good and love is free
And yet I weep whilst I’m asleep
I wish to be with you so deep
Come back again,we’ll live the pain
We’ll weep till we become the rain.
For fire burns and stomachs churn
We may not get what we have earned
Who is the judge,who keeps the ledge
Who will be when love’s alleged?
