Cold Stone

Midnight ’til noon, album by Donal DonohoeAs if you’d always known
but now it’s comin’ home
you feel it in your bones
hits you like cold stone
still sometimes you wake
late in the night
the situation might
then the dream takes flight.

Living with the past,
so close behind
creeping back again,
like a shadow in your mind
waiting every time to
catch you on your own
there’s nowhere you can turn
from those memories that still burn

You reach before moving on
as far as you can
you touch and hold for long.
You watch the children play
and see the days go by
the summer’s almost gone
you know it won’t be long
