Presence comes and goes.
Here today, tomorrow unknown.
Waiting for the day
the garden grows
and we’re all back at home.
Fade away the scars of circumstance.
You put on some music and we’ll dance.
Try to forget,
try to forgive,
or just live in this life we’re in.
Take away thoughts of doing anything
that might ruin winter for the spring.
Finding ourselves between each breath.
Time is all right now, not what’s left.
I know I’ll never make up for my past
if I let another moment like this pass.
You in my arms
and sunlight streaming through.
It’s amazing what a little time can do.
I admit that I have been afraid
of losing time, of losing days.
That’s why I’m holding on so hard right now.
As the song hits the chorus
and I spin you around.
Then bring you close,
as we savor every note.
as the time stand still,
and the sunlight shines until
the song is over,
but we don’t let go.
We still have summer songs
that we both know.
