A little thing

A little thing it was to you,

Tossed in the wind to blow away,

It weighed so little on your heart,

A feather drifting from a nest.

 

Tossed in the wind to blow away,

A crop of kisses lost to time,

A feather drifting from the nest,

A thing of little consequence.

 

A crop of kisses lost to time,

When we were callow, love was sweet,

A thing of little consequence,

Yet time and tide flow for us all.

 

When we were callow, love was sweet

Stars in my eyes, love’s castle rose,

Yet time and tide flow for us all;

The dearest dream fades with the dawn.

 

Stars in my eyes, love’s castle rose,

It weighed so little on your heart;

The dearest dream fades with the dawn,

A little thing it was to you.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.
