The Green Pajamas

Still Never Away

And if I loved you more than this More than this touch, this vampire kiss More than this heart that beats away I couldn't say For what have these jade walls come to find Two different souls of matching mind I might depart before the day Still, never away And when the robin is flying south Your lips may find my ashen mouth Your hazel eyes may find my face Alone in its place And so my ghost won't leave your side The specter of love, his laughing bride If only at twilight, not at day Still, never away _____________________ by Jeff Kelly (c) 1999 St. Brigid Publishing BMI
