Willow, by Cleve Sylcox


In the distant light I saw,

The season change and it was fall,

Leaves glided on a stiff north wind,

And I never thought I’d see you again,


Time enhances love and thought,

I forgot all the years we fought,

I only remember your smiling face,

You held me and gave me grace,


Hold me in the nighttime,

Gaze into my eyes,

Ignore the tears of crying,

I know it’s hard but try,


I want to be with you dearly,

I’ve traveled far and I’m weary,

Place your head on your pillow,

And dream of me tonight.
