There’s a joyous spring I haven’t met yet,
It plagues my life with infinite tenderness.
I’ve fallen, fallen hard, hard like a rock -
A smooth rock, not jagged this time.
This spring, you’ve burst into my life
Bloomed bigger than a flower could ever do
You’ve lifted me up, silly and clueless
It’s settled deep now; won’t go away for a while.
I once had the winter blues, my head clouded up like fog,
And now the smell in the air wraps its arms round me, embracing me
Captured my heart, and stored it away.
I’d like to be your necessary item, your dumb love,
Oh spring you’ve got me wrapped.
Briefly you escape away, leaving my world shrouded in a grey mist.
You squeeze my heart, perhaps if I could leave like you do,
Would I be wringing your love, if that is love?
Wringing you dry, dry like a desert.
I hope you miss me if I could escape; thing is, Spring-
I wouldn’t, even if I could. I’d love to live in you,
Curl up, close these weary eyes.
You’ll always, still, be disappearing,
I could say always, or not, surprise often arrives with you.
No more blues of the winter, please smooth it over for me,
Perhaps I should fly away, dear Spring, dear you, let loose of my inhibitions
To smile one day and burrow the next-
I can no longer look at my old reflection, for its ghouls
Melt the mirror that faces me;
Your warmth takes the pain away,
I’ve shed tears over you;
I hope one day I’ll be that important aspect in that tiring life of yours
I’ll live to love you.
