cherry oak tree
take your lights to new heights
surface through the window
the memory to rest
My love and I went out a'walking,
that is when we both ceased talking.

Yes the rain fair soaked us through
but it felt just like a shower for two.

the moment we stopped using words.

she shone brightest
without you
