A sad song sworn in secrecy
we have felt the pain
my heart bleeds
your soul has needs
no longer this love a legacy.
Caught in a summer rain
moisture in your hair bead
shaking your head sweet smile
listening to you all the while
wet linens felt within our gain.
Simple a truth finds need
affections left in this a trance
two spirits lost inside a dream
today such hurt would we scream
neither lover has a key to lead.
I did once watch her eyes like chance
could man be blessed her solemn dance.
