Out Of Your Shade

Step Into Twilight

You Are There

You Never Miss?

And You'll Be
Like Clementine
words & music Ed Hooke, August 1995    -     Ed Hooke 1995   -    for Sarah H & family

 

 

 


 
We knitted some clothes
but they'll never fit.
We made you a bed.
You'll never lie in it
& we sang "hush-a-bye baby"
but you never cried
& the mobile is immobile.
The nursery's unoccupied.
The sandcastles we dreamed of building
are washed out by the tide
& the dawn will never kiss your lips.
This child has died.

They tell me this pain
will ease given time
that soon I'll kiss your little sister
& you'll be like Clementine
but I can't forget the smiling face
that I've never seen.
Is this silence the epitaph
for whoever you might have been?
Oh how I've loved you.
How I love you still I'm left empty inside.
Now the world calls me to live again
but this child has died.
My child has died.
