Lynn took a chance
So I reached out and embraced her,
She wrapped up in my arms
So close that I could taste her.
The days were warm and humid,
Her kiss like chardonnay.
Her tongue gave absolution
As I knelt right down to pray.
Lynn, your eyes like the stars,
You sigh like the wind
You loved me with effortless grace.
When the Titan opened up the jar
He let loose all the strife,
The people ate the sacred truth
And bought it with their life.
It only takes a single slip
And everything just shatters
An instant and a chance misstep
Our dreams are left in tatters.
Lynn, your heart like fine china
I'll never again
Feel the brush of your hand on my face.
Lynn, asleep like a child
My lips on your skin
I always will miss your embrace.
