DECEMBER (Place Lamartine)

Watching from high windows
Will be my likely end
A tin of peaches Sundays
A funeral now and then
A funeral now and then
When every cough and splutter
Will sound a trigger pull
Till the spin and click of years
Shall find the chamber full
And all the time the glitter in your eyes...

‘Don’t say goodbye’ I hear you say
‘Don’t say goodbye, don’t go, don’t leave today’
And I can see you there
Like it was yesterday

‘Don’t say goodbye’... The street lamps fade
A new day seeps across the esplanade
And as you stand forlorn
Against the breaking dawn
The slow December rain
Begins again

Watching from high windows
A time when I was young
Ask them and they’ll tell you
I could have been someone
I could have been someone
Or maybe someone better
Or just someone better cast
But folding time has creases
That hold us to our past
And all the time the glitter in your eyes...

‘Don’t say goodbye, don’t say it yet
Don’t say goodbye don’t tell me we’ll forget’
And when I look again
I see your face is wet

‘Don’t say goodbye...’ I touch your coat
You smile at some forgotten anecdote
And we both close our eyes
And tell each other lies
You say ‘it’s for the best’
And I say ‘yes’

And we don’t say goodbye
You grab my sleeve
You cry and tell me
That you have to leave
You pull away and then
You take my hand again
And then, with nothing left to say
You run away
