A Sweeter Wine

by Brian Francis

Sometimes when I am lonely
When missing you weighs heavy on my mind
I find myself dreaming
of when life’s flavor seemed a sweeter wine
I’ll drink myself a stupor,
Just trying to make it fade, just go away
drifting through the happiness
I shared with you in my yesterday

I’ve always loved your smile
Even though it only seems to haunt me now
The way you move the hair
from your face or tilt your head wrapped in towel
I yearn for you to surprise me
With your tickling cry just like you used to do
Back when life was colorful
Rather than its present shades of dark and blue

I’ve got memories on my mind
and they just won’t seem to go away
I sit and wander through
The better thoughts of my yesterday
My vision blurred, I am blind
Is it the tears or maybe just the wine?
The kindness of your smile
Has become my personal demise.
