Spring Never Came For Me That Year

As I waited
For spring's signs to appear
They weren't belated
They never quite got here

While flowers
Bloomed in the garden
Those passing hours
Made my heart harden

While young love
Grew to maturity
My unsung love
Had only deserted me

SPRING NEVER
CAME FOR ME THAT YEAR
I WONDER WHATEVER
MADE IT UP AND DISAPPEAR
SPRING NEVER
CAME FOR ME THAT YEAR
LOST FOREVER
IT NEVER QUITE GOT HERE

The winter
Turned right to summer
Infected splinter
The wound grew number

The dustbowls
Dry what little love's left
Hearts and souls
Are both subject to death

Desert streets
Moan in the summer heat
Empty heartbeats
Cast me to defeat

SPRING NEVER

An autumn
Brought forth disaster
Spring didn't come
Cold came back faster

Charities
Were none if any
Similarities
Were one too many

The next year
Brought forth more of the same
I was waiting here
Again spring never came

SPRING NEVER
