Autumn in the Tuileries, Paris, France

Places

Been to a place
Where the sea meets the sky
Blurred horizon
A paradise

Been to a place
Where the trees grow tall
Providing shelter
A home to the small

Been to a place
Where the flowers bloom
For miles and miles
As a rainbow

Been to a place
Where the corn rises
Like the sun
In rows of gold

Been to a place
Built by man
Steel and grey
Created with a plan

Been to these places
In search of a home
I found too many
To call my own

In each of these places
I left a piece of me
Just as they left their mark
In my heart

Wherever I go
Whatever I see
I know, at least
There’s places for me

Fling;

Summer’s day

Nothing’s grey

When I first saw you.

 

In the summer heat,

Dancing to the beat

When I first saw you.

 

Day to night

In the fire light

When I got to know you.

 

Wind in hair

On a road trip dare

When I got to know you.

 

Concert shows

And ice cream cones

When I grew to love you.

 

Dates under the stars

And in bars

When I grew to love you.

 

Summer’s end

No need to pretend

When we fell apart.
