in the sun

in the sun by anelephantcant

Click here to hear the poet read his words:

in the sun

summer is over and autumn has fled
dreich winter is just settling in
the wam lazy life we enjoyed all those years
disappears like the slow setting sun

do you think the love we once had is dead
do you feel that the passion is gone
is there any future in who we are now
or should I just sadly move on

will your life be much better without me
do I bring you less pleasure than pain
will you be happier not to know where I am
and never to see me again

I have been here too long growing tired and old
when I want to lie every day in the sun
don’t make me stay here slowly fading with cold
let me be warm let me live in the sun

and please let me die in the sun

    Sad. The sun sets. It will rise again, though. Is that the same sun, or a fresh one? Who knows?
