My Long Lost Tulip Hard

Written by: Gillian Hewitt - Stubbs

To stand with your shadow. The empty hollow cry. I loved you for no reason, other than the kindness in your eye. Where dreams fall behind us. We danced to the ides of march. Your ancient wisdom scares me as much as the youngness of your heart. For people who would rather, find a safe place to reside. I choose to walk beside you, with both my hands untied. Take my open palm. Place your autumn smile inside. I'll hold it through the winter, and release it when the spring wind arrives. but promise me one thing. you'll never look behind my eyes. for in their depth you'll find broken, my long lost tulip harp.
