Before the End
Sunflowers and dandelions.
Sometimes in life it's a fine line.
We go outside to breathe the air.
Look around, try not to stare.
The little children play and run.
The girls are screaming, having fun.
Little boys just follow along.
Learning the words to write the song.
A bouquet of summer sweet refrain.
A timeless imprint on the brain.
To carry us into the night.
Beyond what sunshine brings to light.
After all the dreams come true.
But get lost in the dawning dew.
Only glimpses of love survive.
As you awake feeling half alive.
Finally finding out the truth.
About our fantasy in youth.
All we wanted was a friend.
And a little love before the end.
