Suitor


Await my arrival,
chant, bring
the house down.
Taste the sacrifice,
hear the big sound.

Tears alter forever 
each ecstatic face;
please don't forget  
I once had a place.

Say my name,
sing our special song.
Always remember,
we're not here for long.

Too soon gone, 
even good lovers fade;
in their perfection, 
we're blind
to how they're made.
