Must I awake, in dead of night,
from deepest sleep, into the light,
as my loved one, says she's cold
and is looking for some clothes.
It's 5 AM as I say to her
"what are you doing"?
She says, back to me,
"I'm cold". I look and she has
an undershirt on top of her
sleeping gown.
An early morning excursion
that she won't recall the
next morning.
Evenings and early mornings
seem to be the time that
strange behavior occurs.
A common trait is what
I've been told.

I must admit
that what I say
is such a sham.
I would say to you,
if I were still
an honest man.
I'm not you see,
for if you look,
you will come upon,
the long lost soul
of an unrepentant Son.
The loss of love
in this strange life
is what I see ahead,
for then and only then,
in this white haired head,
are the secrets that
I thought were known,
by every living man,
for instead of being
anchored to the Earth,
our feet are in shifting sand.

When in the yard, I'll hear a caw,
That tells me about where you are.
I'll reply, "I hear you now"
And then, it's when I see
You on the limb of the Maple tree.
I hear your voice telling me,
That you are hungry, very hungry.
I'll find some Peanuts, not in the shell;
Place them on the ground, where you see well.
Then I wait for your mate and thee.
As you alight, so cautiously,
I say, "Don't be afraid", I say to you
And I leave as I have tasks to do.
