STREETLAMP

We look to the past
When the light shone brighter
When days were sun filled
And after dark
We loitered hand in hand
Under its yellow beam
Your summer dress picked out
Your face lit
In mysterious tones
As we cuddled together
Afire
Under the street lamp.

We struggle to remember
Its warm glow
Its elegant form
While the sharp lights
Where we take
Our evening stroll
These winter nights
Are so bright
Fail to flatter
Your hard-won lines
Your worried frown
Oh for the street lamp
When life was just begun
And I kissed you, my love,
Under its subtle rays
