yesterday he said i was beautiful

but today he does not know my name

and i don't know how to keep him here

wild winds take time to smell the flowers

they exclaim how sweet the smell

but they do not take the time to stop

and some days

they do not smell the flowers at all

yesterday he noticed my hair

but today he is someone else

and i don't know how to make it last

rain falls here softly sometimes

it leaves no leaf dry, no blade of grass untouched

but some days it falls too violently

and some days

it does not fall at all

yesterday he walked me to my car

but today he drives off without looking back

and i don't know why he's leaving

blue birds and robins alight on the fence here

on their way to somewhere warm

but they do not stay for long

and some days

they do not come at all
