My Childhood Friend
A song was just a song
Until you came along
And changed the meaning
I saw your heart dancing
In the light in your eyes in the moonlight
Like a promise of morning
You threw your head back as you laughed
And the wind caught the swirl of your skirt
Transparent in the shimmer of dawn
Radiant glow from the sun shining through
You moved like a leaf in the autumn
Drifting gracefully down to the ground.
And we never noticed the falling
Until you were gone.
