I and You Were Both Together Saved


I was drinking. Drowning in my sorrow,
And then when I awoke
It was just another tomorrow…
So it’s then I just decided to follow…
That same old sorrow…
It was easier than just waiting, remaining!
Waiting for something, positive too
Happen to me.
I wasn’t just, sleeping,
Like a shadow on your wall
I was there but I wasn’t asking you to call…
Or change my ways.
I was just drinking. Drowning in my sorrows
And then when I awoke
And it all somehow had changed
It wasn’t just another tomorrow…
It was a brand new day,
And I felt strong, no longer a fool
So it’s then, I just decided to follow you
And sorrow, sorrow was washed away…
In a wave I and you were both together saved.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Your hands lie open in the long fresh grass, --

Your eyes smile peace. The pasture gleams and glooms
