He Went Away
Like the wind you went away
by David Bauzo
Will you come back another day?
Like the wind so far away,
I didn’t know what to say Like the water you slipped through,
I came back, I promised you
Like the water through my hands
Will you visit other lands Like the ice are your lips
Do you feel my finger tips?
Like the night you turned black,
Will you get your color back? Like a lonely broken heart,
How it tore mine apart
Like a lifeless body there
I had to leave to get some air All the chatter in the hall
Oh you know; he knows it all
Now we’re all wearing shades
Oh you know he’s got the aids Though we walk a slower pace
A closed box, I can’t see your face
When they ask; what will I say?
Oh you know he went away.
