The Flowers And The Wine

Another night I've been to visit you and him
Comes to an end
Switch on the hallway light
Farewell a friend

Another night I bring the flowers and the wine
Has slipped away
There were only three to dine
And two to stay

   When you fix the dates for tête-à-têtes like these
   What tells you that I count the days between
   Except my nothing-caring air of ease?

   When clouds black out the moon that moves the tide
   What tells you there's a river in the dark
   Except the streetlights on the other side ?

Another night I book a taxi door to door
Has been and gone
I have never loved you more
See you anon
