  • SWEET ROSEMARY

    My sweet Rosemary
    She came to tea
    In 1994
    She showed me
    A thing or two
    Before I showed her the door
    We met again
    By new year’s end
    We kissed beneath our tree
    Call me a fool
    But I ain’t cruel
    So once more I set her free
    From her sacred chalice
    I’ll never again sip
    All my golden chances
    I let ’em all slip
    Now I’d lay down my life
    If I could only see
    Once more the smiling face
    Of my sweet Rosemary
    My sweet Rosemary
    Come back to me
    I’m broken and alone
    I lay here
    Beside you dear
    And your grave of icy stone
    I remember her words
    Devoutly now
    She said, “We’ll always be together”
    She knew that, somehow
    You don’t know the cost
    Till you’re hurt this deep
    And cannot awaken
    From the nightmare sleep
    From her sacred chalice
    I’ll never again sip
    All my golden chances
    I let ’em all slip
    Now I’d lay down my life
    If I could only see
    Once more the smiling face
    Of my sweet Rosemary
