= Last Day =

Hide it here it will be safe while we wait the winter out
and then when the spring comes again we can free it and row her and be together forever

But when the spring came he went away and I was left to walk and see the boat waiting
waiting for his return to row it once more

Many winters came and went the boat stayed there filling with leaves
I would sweep them out and wait for him to return

Once the last time I came it was not there
I looked up and down and finally saw it
Two who I recognized had been small children of my youth
they were now rowing it up the stream laughing with love in their eyes

When had they grown up …. when had I gotten so old

I turned my days of waiting at an end
It was the last day of May
