The silence seeped into the windows

like a room that has been shut up for some time

where a  fly hits the glass over and over

with the same result and rhyme


We use to dance to Brown Eyed Girl

and drink  Elderberry wine

I could swear she was an angel

when she said her heart was mine


A  man can mess up so many things

 still she stayed with me through the night

Now I make my final days with only her

for in the end she is all that I ever got right
