When we were young
things were different then
how we used to live forever?
Your hair was red
having faded now
but then like a fire engine
and caught the wind
a living thing,
like a gull, or a hawk--
but not just one--
it was always sunrise then--
Remember that day
you ran so fast
and were sure it was because of new shoes?
Oh my love
if I could see you now
just once in the common light of life
I would hold you close
and not let go,
I would not let go again
