In my heart

Late summer sun, the trees are on the turn
September brings the lesson we relearn
Green leaves grow dry
They blaze and die
Nights grow long 'til the colours have all gone
But sap will sing in spring.

Winter trees grow naked and serene
Constant through the seasons in between
You should know
If lovers come and go
You can depend on one good friend
Never doubt that you are in my heart.

Kingfishers dart at the corner of my eye
A shout of blue like concentrated sky
Don't close your heart
Don't close your eyes
Your joy will come, your hope will rise
Never doubt that you are in my heart.
