Silvery leaves shimmered in the distance

Silvery leaves shimmered in the distance

Such an existence on Valentine’s Day

Fumble my way and with such resistance

Gone the distance in my woebegone way

Roses with thorns pricked my fingers

Pain just lingers on slender wrist

Nylon cloth was used to cinch it

Have to admit you’re here

Leaves shimmered and I’m on my way

I don’t stray that is so clear

It gives me cheer and with a twist

And in this midst you’re near
