Song Description

A poet dealing with loss of his love.

Story Behind the Song

My Father losing my Mother.

Lyrics

Blank Page
There were fresh flowers on the window sill
That was something she used to do
I would breathe in her colors until I had my fill
She'd say - I put them there - just for you
I would hear her sing the morning sun
And put love in a cup of tea
I would write each word to a simple poem
As if love - is something - she made for me
Blank page no words for loss just a pen against the dark
Blank page it's an empty stage words to mend a aching heart
The tears still fall for all those words I didn't say
How could I describe her kiss?
When shadows fall and I've spent the day
Thinking of her and all I miss
Blank page no words for loss just a pen against the dark
Blank page it's an empty stage words to mend a aching heart
I can find no meaning when there should be meaning still
Just empty words carved on my heart
The poet writes 'dying flowers on a window sill'
Having her love - was the - better part
Having her love - was the - better part
Now she lives here within my heart
I'm just a poet looking for a word to start
On a blank page I write
There were fresh flowers on the window sill
That was something she used to do
I would breathe in her colors until I had my fill
She'd say - I put them there - just for you
