There's a tree I used to climb
In a place I thought was mine
Laden with the blossoms that had fallen over time
With your handprint in the grass
Marking memories you had passed
Rising through the summer heat like bubbles in your glass

Now I can't remember why
I just stood and let you cry
Salty lips against my own a promise and a lie
Now the autumn's come around
And your blossoms fear the ground
Sitting in the branches, I could sing their petals down

There are causeways I have walked
While I listened to you talk
Concrete streams that spread across their beds of coral chalk
And they flow down to the sea
So I thought they'd carry me
To drift amidst the peaceful flotsam we could never be

I would sail my ship along
'Til I found where you belong
Leaving wakes like silver wings as if I can't be wrong
We could fly the frozen clouds
But that's all behind us now
Winter finds us shivering beneath the empty boughs

And I ran those paths again
While your tears came down as rain
Breathing all along my skin in whispers of your pain
But your weeping cooled the sun
And left me the only one
Who knew the blossoms on your tree or cared that you were gone

I pressed flower books for you
So I'd know your tears were true
Photographs keep fading through the hazy afternoon
Was a time when life was right
And when every day was light
I'll sleep above your handprint through the last unending night
Author's Notes:
I love you, and I miss you.
