Nov.4th (Anniversary)


A fog is spilling into these streets again
Like smoke filling the doomed house at night
And the chill is doubling day by day
And the ice on the road creeps this way

Unlivable, it was unworkable for too long
So, the powers that be; they took a chance
And spoke the words that I couldn't say
And stamped the hope with a date and time

The silver skies that were suspended
Clouded up with those freezing fears
That letting go, into that all-unknown
With only a bottle of beer for peace

A year ago we talked, then turned and walked
Beyond the furthest point we'd been before
And into new arms, you were promptly caught
And into a drug, I tossed my heavy heart

There were Christmas-coloured lights in the street
There was ice on my windshield each morning
Frozen tears that I bled under my bed at night
Lamp light and the warmth of caring friends

Anniversary
An anniversary of change
We don't celebrate
We don't gratify the date
Anniversary...
An anniversary of change

WHAT flower is this that greets the morn,
Its hues from Heaven so freshly born?
With burning star and flaming band
It kindles all the sunset land:
