I Sing A Sad Song II
I sing a sad song for those who would
If they could, be entwined for longer than
Fleeting time permits....
I sing a sad song for the resurgence of
Kisses that burn with desire, but must
I sing a sad song for hands that reach,
With only the finger tips touching, as
The clock screams it's time to go...
I sing a sad song for scattered moments,
For arms that cling, soon to embrace only
I sing a sad song for all the fires of
Passion which flare, fading in the quiet
Gloom, as the door closes and someone
Is left alone to tears.
I sing a sad song for lovers that substitute,
Betraying someone else...
I sing a sad song for those who sit in mourning
In the back of the church...
I sing a sad song for those who roam lone
Corridors, where there are doors they
Cannot enter, marked family members only...
I sing a sad song for dreams weaved of hopeless
My sad song is for all the hearts that ache
I sing this sad song soon to be set to music and
Sang over and over again...
My sad song is for all of those who spend time
Singing sad songs....
