Unfinished love

When I was young and you were too

I'd walk the fields and lanes with you

Old ladies in their rocking chairs

Evening strollers everywhere

Your hand in mine, your kiss so sweet

What promises we failed to keep


But still when evening falls in June, July

Or August harvest moon, I see your image

Crystal clear I feel your presence ever near

So near I might reach out and touch I want

To love you very much but you're a dream

And I'm a fool my second wife would not



I fear I can't escape the past, the night

The light, the silent gasps as time stands

Still and back I go, I'm on your street

Stood at your door. Why do I hurt myself

This way it's just the light, the sounds, the



Well, no it's not, it's more than that unfinished

Love will not relax, nor will it rest, nor can it lie

It's at its strongest June/July. You're not alone

In winsome thoughts on nights like these

Another heart hurts like yours and craves so

Much an end to this unfinished love
