Hello Daylight

Hello daylight my old friend
I’ve come to lecture you again
Because I’ve reconciled my failure here
To hang on to the things that I hold dear
And ambitions I had chosen turned to dust
Of course they must
So here we are
In conference.

And as I burned under your gaze
I kept my counsel in the maze
Of the arguments both weak and strong
Forever doubting if we could belong
To a homeland that rejected all our loves
With velvet gloves
And stole away
Our best selves.

(with apologies to Simon & Garfunkel)
