Catch a Falling Star

I can’t quite recall The feel of your fingers In my hand and The sound of your voice Escapes me today, But I’ll remember it. What was that song we sang? Solo I can’t quite get the tune. No one else thinks it’s funny. You thought putting a falling star in your pocket was silly. But it’s rainy now and I need one on this starless night. ©March 28, 2003 Kathryn McL. Collins

Wistful and sad... even with the word 'funny' in the text. So well expressed! Love, Keith
