Willow, by Cleve Sylcox

In the distant light I saw,

The season change and it was fall,

Leaves glided on a stiff north wind,

And I never thought I’d see you again,

 

Time enhances love and thought,

I forgot all the years we fought,

I only remember your smiling face,

You held me and gave me grace,

 

Hold me in the nighttime,

Gaze into my eyes,

Ignore the tears of crying,

I know it’s hard but try,

 

I want to be with you dearly,

I’ve traveled far and I’m weary,

Place your head on your pillow,

And dream of me tonight.
