BUTTERMERE LAKE

IT CALLS ME FOR MY RETURN,

AND I WONDER IF SHE HOLDS,

THE REFLECTION OF MY LOVE,

I LEFT THERE ONCE BEFORE…

 

IT WAS A HAPPY SMILING FACE,

REMEMBER THAT WONDROUS WILY GRIN?

DO YOU STILL HOLD IT FIRM,

AS I DO IN MY MIND’S EYE?

 

I WOULD THAT I COULD GATHER IT UP

AND HOLD IT STILL WITHIN MY ARMS,

FOR THE CHERISHED CHARMS ARE LOST,

AND I AM NOW FORLORN…

 

I HAVE A SILHOUETTE PORTRAIT,

THAT SITS JUST BEHIND MY SOUL,

AND THERE SHE WHISPERS LOVINGLY,

BUT I WOULD LOVE TO OWN,

 

THAT LAST REFLECTION.

 

MEMORIES FLOOD IN.

DALE ‘M’
