lyrics

We were such an unlikely pair
you in your creased slacks and me
with braids in my hair.

We’d drive down south
to the place where the land
fell into the sea.

You would show me where
we could park so there
was just sky and moon and
two mismatched stars together.

The kindness of your hand
as you placed the band
of your mother’s ring
and the hymn
and the home
and the children.

Now there’s a space
a full moon can’t fill
the size of my heart
on Bonfire Hill.

The long drives up to Windermere,
taught our girls to swim
and swim away they did.

Quiet house. Your favorite chair
holding me while I just talk
like you’re still there.
