Violet

Who will I tell

When a brass band plays

On a summer’s day

Or a son gets wed

To a beautiful bride

Or daughter returns

To rest a while

Before leaving

A wound

Only you understand

Who will I tell

When I hold in my arms

For the very first time

A longed-for child

When she cuts her first tooth

Or speaks my name

Now that you’r e gone

Who will I tell

When I have no more to tell?
