 Isnt how I wanted it

 

 

 

So good to see you

Has it really been so long

I just love what you’ve done

with the place

 

hadn’t you noticed

that we’ve been away

such lovely flowers

and I cannot remember

why we came

 

this isn’t how I wanted it

 

Take a look round the garden

The lawns been done

Pruned the camellias

They were getting in the way

How about the weather

Something to talk about

You seem so familiar

But I can’t understand a

word you say

 

This isn’t how I wanted it

 

When you see me

Look right through me

The well of secrets

Don’t dip so deeply

 I can feel it

 

We must be going

is that the time

So much to tell you

We must do this again

We’ll come for a visit

One of these days

But who are these people

And where are all

The ones they have replaced?

 

This isn’t how I wanted it
