Now You’ll Never Know

Written June 2012, for Heidi S-R

now you’ll never know,
and I’m no good at letting go,
the summer’s settled in,
the weeds are tall and wild again,
+++ beneath a cloudless sky
+++ there’s nowhere we can hide,
and so we miss you,
now you’ll never know..

a day like all the rest,
except that you have left,
so I will try my best
to keep this time you didn’t get,
+++ to stumble over love,
+++ that might be close enough,
you keep me honest,
I wonder if you know..

the geese are not afraid,
they’ve gathered in the shade,
to rest along their way,
or maybe this is where they’ll stay,
+++ our hearts—a flock of birds,
+++ with nowhere else to perch,
+++ but here, together,
+++ now you’ll never know..
+++++ beneath a cloudless sky
+++++ there’s nowhere we can hide,
and so we miss you,
I wonder if you know..
you keep me honest…
