Seasons

by Lasika Priskorya

Walking alone
This road is old and worn
Dreams of winter
Won’t bring me home

Waking alone
These sheets are cold and torn
Dreams of summer
Won’t bring you home

Winter snowstorms, summer showers
Hollow out my soul
Springtime blossoms, autumn’s silence
Leading me back home

Passing seasons, aching bones
How long ’til I find what your eyes hide?
I can’t walk alone
And I dare not sleep alone
‘Til then, the road will guide
My way back to your side

Wasting away
In whiskey without end
Dreams of spring thaw
Won’t help me mend

Passing seasons, changing faces
Wanting only your embrace

Winter’s dead chill, summer’s warm hands
What will make me whole?
Springtime’s whispers, autumn’s dark skies
Where will I call home?

Passing seasons, aching bones
How long ’til I find your arms held wide?
I must walk alone
But I dare not dream alone
‘Til then, the road will guide
My way back to your side

Wasting seasons
By waiting for someone
Dreams of autumn
Have just begun
