verslaafd

Miserere mei

gaan te snel

Anderhalve meter van de zomer

een minuut geleden ontdekt

Sunrise, sunset
Sunrise, sunset

Is this the little girl I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?
I don’t remember growing older
When did they?

When did she get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?
Wasn’t it yesterday when they were small?

Sunrise sunset, sunrise, sunset
Swiftly flow the days
Seedlings turn overnight to sunflowers
Blossoming even as they gaze . .

Sunrise sunset, sunrise, sunset!
Swiftly fly the years
One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears . .

One season following another
Laden with happiness and tears . .
