Follow me...


I'll follow you down to
Where the green grass grows

I'll follow you down to
Where the willow tree branches hang low

I'll follow you down to
Where I last saw you smiling face

I'll follow you down to
Where we used to call our sacred place

But your not there
And your not here

It seems to me
I'm following your shadow

But I can't keep up
And you're losing me

Please set me free
From following your memory

You were the only one
Who ever loved me

You were the only one
Who ever cared

But now you've gone
So far, far away
Hopefully to be back one day

If you come back home
I won't be here
I'll be gone
Far away
Never to return one day

So follow me down to
Where the green grass grows

Follow me down to
Where the willow tree branches hang low

Follow me down to
Where you last saw my smiling face

Follow me down to
Where we used to call our sacred place

But I'm not here
And I'm not there

It seems to me
You're following my shadow

But you can't keep up
And you're losing me

I'll set you free
From following my memory

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth

I

I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
