Snowbird

What word do you want me to give you?
When these words are not mine to keep.
What dreams do you want me to show you?
When I can’t recall these dreams after my sleep.

I’m but a tired traveller sailing back and forth
The ocean of time.
You ask too much of me. I’m still in my downtime.
You want me to stay here with you for a while.
O’ Darling, we’re getting old. This is no time to be juvenile.

Some wintertime, I will come to meet you again.
By then, I will be a forgotten bane.
I will arrive with that eternal chill.
To find you gone like a snowbird in its free will.
