Now the sun is already setting on the drive home

Sometimes its already dark when I open the door

I wear boots over bare legs feigning ignorance
To the coming storms, the snow the ice the cold

My cats lips have a seasonal reaction as they swell up

Allergies the vet says nothing we can do

And an ocean length away he is warm
 In the sunshine sweating in the heat

And I wish the weather wouldn't change that

It would stay so I can remember the way

The water glistened on our skin

The way I reddened in the middle-eastern sun

The way we were glued together
By heat by love by knowing
It was fleeting and I

Would be getting colder while you were still warm
