I cried when I met you.

I cried cause I knew,

I met you at the wrong time.

Neither of us were ready for what ensued.

I knew you and I wanted you-

But I couldn’t keep you.

Your type of love, so foreign to me,

So out of season, so out of place.

Like needles on a maple tree.

Like spring flowers in December.

Like autumn leaves in the summer.
