Little Walk in Town
I crossed empty streets today
For a little walk in town.
It feels like a movie scenery
- We call it lockdown.
Smell of spring
And a deep blue sky
Birds in the trees,
Singing the winter goodbye.
A handwritten sign on the store makes me smile
So hopeful as it says –we’ll be back in a while.
It’s cruel and the same time it’s peaceful at all
And it’s spring but at the same time it feels like fall.
And the birds sing like they know what it means,
That the earth takes a little break to heal.
The wind whispers something
It sounds like your name
Or maybe my mind plays a foolish game.
And the river still flows the same way like before
when we owned the world, but wanted more.
And the birds are singing what I already knew
Nothing lasts forever though the sky is so blue.
