Poem: Soleil et marguerites

Poem: Sunshine and daisies (soleil et marguerites)

Alone in the sunshine with the daisies
My ash blonde hair turned green from the chlorine
I step in and out of the pool, I do laps, I take naps
I find you resting on your stomach with your back to the sun
Back to the sun
I thought I was alone here
But it’s something funny
Every time I think I’m alone I see you
You come here, around town, when I’m blue
You don’t call ahead of time
The summer air is just sublime
Dripping rose on the vine

Alone in the sunshine with the daisies
They’re my only friends, everybody thinks I’m crazy
But I’ve got you, baby

I’d love to stay here with you
But there are things that I cannot do
It took some gettin’ used to
And one of them
Is to belong to you
One of them
Is to belong to you

I think you know what I know
I think you know what I know

I think I’ve got it right this time
I think I’ve got it right this time

You and I can’t stay together
You and I can’t stay together

No matter the weather
No matter the shadows
I think you know what I know
I think you know what I know

You and I can’t be together
You and I can’t be together

God’s judgement is harshest when it rains
