She calls me back
and I come running

Like a bird's mate
Like the wind and the trees
Like the sun and the moon
Like rain and shine

Like and addict to dope
Like a drunk to alcohol
Like thieves to money

Her voice would wake me like spring would awaken bears
Like summer awakens insects
Like fall awakens beautiful colors
Like spring awakens white and gray,
the colors of you -
porcelain doll
with freckles

It's fleeting
I know it and you know it, but I know I want you
and you know you want me
but we both know it won't last
by the time the leaves fall

let's drag this thing out
just a little more.
