Subject(s): Spring


My heart is reaching out
To tender things,
The unforgotten words
Of other springs

When every day that dawned
Brought tasks to do,
And life flowed gaily on
Because of you.

We shared each simple joy
And found a way
To banish all the dust
Of yesterday.

We saw a falling star
And wished in vain,
Yet -- if I had the chance
I'd wish again.

My heart is reaching out
Remembering
The tender things that blossomed
In the spring.
