Five Days

On the twentieth of March

Nineteen ninety three

Lionel’s older sister said

I fall in love too easily


At my nineteenth summer’s end

Watching purple lights

All night long it proved me wrong

My one French kiss with Emily


In the new millenium

Somehow I survived

One procession of the sun

When twice I was cast aside


Rosie saved my life but now

Despite how I changed

What I’d give to relive

The day I nearly died


Looking back on girls I’ve loved

And what might have been

The day I came to understand

Was Ellie’s wedding day
