oh, the things i would do

i would sing her a lullaby
in the trees at night by my house
the wolves circling hungrily below

i would make her omelets
in the kitchen while she bathed 
in the pool in the back yard

i would call her to madrid
eventually knowing the end
was just around the corner

i would build her a sunday
one saturday afternoon
the cherries covering the floor

i would let her know
what i was feeling
years after she had left

on her answering machine
the drink in my hand
falling into the carpet

"I would build her a Sunday one Saturday afternoon the cherries covering the floor..." I love those lines.
