here’s a new song…
They first met on a Monday,
in the young part of the year.
Something noticed in the other
Something neither thought to fear
& they made each other wonder,
as their secrets became shared.
nothing hidden from the other
nothing left to make them scared
…but never on Sunday
that day she saved for him
it was the last day that he loved her
it was the day that she stayed in
It was Wednesday that he noticed,
they’d been labeled as a pair.
everything was intermingled
everything was to be shared
He had noticed more than she had,
that what was his was now her’s too.
nothing from him sounded warning
nothing showed what he might do
She was ready by the Friday,
to live a life as one of two.
something she had always wanted
something she was sure was true
But he was looking for the exit,
felt the walls were closing in.
nothing she could ever notice
nothing she would see begin
They awakened on a Sunday,
arm in arm & side by side.
Something felt a little sideways
Something he had tried to hide
He’d found no painless way to tell her,
so he packed without a word.
Nothing she could do to stop him
Nothing said she would have heard
