Brings forth the spring

You lie there
sleeping
beneath the weight of the world
where your laughter
vibrates
where your smile resides
within my crumbling memory
within your crumbling bed

You lie there
not forgotten
as long as I can hold
the weight of your world
within the weight of mine
you’ll not be forgotten

You lie there
sleeping
as your soul, your spirit
weightless
sits upon bluebell dreams
where your smile, your laughter
brings forth the spring

Brings forth the spring

You lie there
sleeping
beneath the weight of the world
where your laughter
vibrates
where your smile resides
within my crumbling memory
within your crumbling bed

You lie there
not forgotten
as long as I can hold
the weight of your world
within the weight of mine
you’ll not be forgotten

You lie there
sleeping
as your soul, your spirit
weightless
sits upon bluebell dreams
where your smile, your laughter
brings forth the spring
