A Long Farewell


Hold me close then let me go
Your parting words so quickly tell
Oh my dear, I think you know
I do not like a long farewell

The columbine and apple tree
Lay heavy with the scent of June
When you are so far from me
I will hear you in their tune

See the daisies on the hill
Silent witness to these hours
Suddenly I feel a chill
Where we danced among the flowers

Darling, leave me, darling stay
Without you I’m but a shell
Hold me close, no, go away
I do not like a long farewell

Keep the soft blue memory
Where our tears and starlight fell
Leave me now or never leave
I do not like a long farewell
