If she glows

Keep from the shadows

If she bleeds gold, follow her trail

And hope picks up where I always fail

I mapped out our beginning

And highlighted our end

With red x’s dot to dot

Rocky roads, winding turns

I would’ve given you everything, anything

But you made your choice

When clocks start ticking

Time is on the run

Love we started on a click

With cracked sidewalks

Breaking backs

On rubber soles

In your agony, I was forever absent

Hard at work to help us through

Building our home

From room to room

Painted gold

Glowing my way

Where lampshades fold.
