.............Kevby Andy Derryberry
 
Kev, I'd have waited the few weeksSo I could see daffodils jumpFrom the ground one more timeInstead you took a turnAnd made an exitMaybe a season too soonI'd want to hear thunder and rainHailstones against tinAnd window pane once againMaybe after that I'd be readyFinished with love and hateDone with doing anythingReady maybe, but I think I'd waitFor summer heat, salty sweatJust a few short weeksInstead you took a turnAnd made an exitMaybe a season too soonBlazing sun, summer funPretty women and bathing suitsHummingbirds and jet skisMaybe after that I'd be readyFinished with love and hateDone with doing anythingReady maybe, but it would be niceTo know fall againCrisp nights and clear moonsInstead you took a turnAnd made an exitMaybe a season too soonFrost on pumpkinsBrilliant colors in treesDazzling sunsets after bright skiesMaybe after that I'd be readyFinished with love and hateDone with doing anythingBut maybe just one more ChristmasAnd gifts under the treeAt PaPa D'sInstead you took a turnAnd made an exitMaybe a season too soonHappiness and singingLingering rememberingOf all the seasons beforeMaybe after that I'd be readyFinished with love and hateDone with doing anythingReady maybe, but just one more snowQuiet and warm in a wayTransforming the worldInstead you took a turnAnd made an exitMaybe a season too soonDeep in the blanketsAway from the coldWarm in sleep and dreamingMaybe after that I'd be readyFinished with love and hateDone with doing anythingBut...Kev, I'd have waited the few weeks tilspringSo I could see daffodils jumpFrom the ground one more time
