It was the lilacs Yes of course the lilacs How can the spring of youth resist them I know we could not.
He was too young for me Too handsome His hair too long and blonde His eyes too blue.
But the lilacs Their fragrance as heavy As dew. My heart overpowered At an age when love has surely passed me by. But he came into the lilacs fragrance. Running down the country road all alone I was answering my cell phone a business call Then the accident the noise on the car The sight of him flying in the air The silence.
All I had thought about was money success Spoiled getting all I wanted. But he was lay there in the road. I cradled him to my breast he was so beautiful.
Are you an angel he said am I in heaven. From the road the wild lilacs sang their sweet song No not in heaven you are here on earth.
Can I stay here forever You are beautiful don't leave me Let me breathe your lilacs At the hospital he was treated He is in bad shape the doctors said he's pretty broken up I doubt he will walk again.
Can he stay here I asked not really he has no insurance, He will be moved to county asap. Don't do that I will pay she said.
He went into a coma for seven weeks I Sat with him every night When he awoke he looked at me with his Beautiful piercing blue eyes.
You are my angel he whispered. You saved me I belong to you now.
He learned how to walk again I helped him regain his strength Then he got well And I realised I was going to miss him So very much.
I asked him what he wanted I would buy it for him. He said only you and the lilacs I said you are too young for me. You will not want me when I get older.. But he countered I want you now my angel
A year later I just gave birth to our child She is beautiful Born in the late spring When the Lilacs bloom.
