Always Too Soon

The same roads that lead to you lead away, 

And I can place each bend and faded sign. 

There’s a catch in my throat by light of day 

Since I know I’m your moonglow Valentine. 

I study each expression on your face

And archive them all so I won’t forget. 

They’ll transport me back to this time and place, 

Rosy cheeks without a trace of regret. 

Though words get lost between your head and heart 

I comprehend all that you do not say. 

With the simple pleasures you can impart 

I wouldn’t have it any other way. 

It could be grey, a dreary afternoon –  

The time spent with you ends always too soon.
