1 We were not young love conversation flowed between gaps in indifferent hearts into silence ‘til the day you gave me flowers without reason. 2 Uploading birdsong a day of cherry blossom rains confetti. I save soul-fuls of memory. All you say and all you do. 3 Fickle and faithful every day the sea returns with gifts for the beach inseparable yet attracted to the moon. 4 The way I like it you make me an old fashioned; heavy on bitters, sugar, bourbon, cherries, twist, ice shaped like skulls and crossbones. 5 Your pillow tumbling with thick tight curls that sprang back in youth undaunted cradles your baldness now but the moon and I remember.
