I tried to sing today
The same tune that we crooned yesterdays
There was no life
Did you take that warmth away with you?
The words flowed easily,
Cascading memories, sliding one over another
But the images were blurred
Do you have the negatives with you?
There was rhythm in the music
But my heart did not bleat
It stood still
Do you know the tempo to that tune?
If you decide to come over this side
Bring back those notes
I need to re-wrap my body for eternity
