Five years ago, they came
They drank the tavern dry,
and winded round the house
in which the dead do lie.

They cried, they laughed
a child danced upon the lawn
and some did drink and jaw
until the breaking of the dawn.

They mourned and sang
and laughed at 'membered gapes
and ladies many
sobbed in darkened drapes.

Five years ago, they came
Five years, and more, I mourn.

Has it been so long?
Time moves so strangely...

It seems like yesterday that I was driving though blazing fall hills,
sobbing and yelling at someone who wasn't there.

I really didn't think it had been five years.

The wind remembers
times gone by, not forgotten
in the least; our friend.
