A Thought for Today
The heart has its
TWO SELECTIONS FROM THE ALBUM FOR LOVERS
Ill Carry Home An Orchard
If you like apples
then Ill carry home an orchard
if sky is to your liking
Ill bundle up the skies of summer
so youll never need to know
the winter evening anymore.
I like the fire
and so I wait for winter nights
apples I can take or leave.
like your mind
has need of going over
and I intend to be a journeyman
of your soft skin
for years to come.
Looking Up Through Wednesdays Silence
There is always
the tick-tock of time
and getting inside each other
is like trying to make an old clock right again
trying to make somebody elses music
fit our words.
You wonder sometimes
if there will ever be enough time
in this life or the next
to put ourselves in place
to get one another right
When I believe
Ive finally stumbled on to who you really are
and what youre about
I wake up and find somebody else
on the pillow next to me.
And looking up
through Wednesdays silence
I wondered where youd gone to
even though you were lying next to me.
