To whom, who can understand it

Nurtured in solitude of winter rains

With breath of summer, flowers bloom estranged

And butterfly has fluttered from thy plain

Away from wanton safety of the ranch

I hear in whispers of one mind’s defeat

I watch in silence as the heart betrays

I feel feet moving to the secret beat

I see one scouting crowds for younger prey

I speak of things forgotten by the brain

And memories of lips that lie with ease

Of mocking words that sting thy soul with pain

Of eyes that smiled in the summer breeze

Of open rooftops, midnight swims and laughs

Of hair lockets safely tucked away

Of love that is too strong to ever pass

Of pride too heavy for the mind to slay

Thy mind will lie and waiver and forget

Thy memory will play a trick on thee

Thy heart will beat forever stronger yet

Once time allows thy will to set it free

To whom, who can understand it
