Here she comes again

Leaving me with a crisp kiss

Sunsets red as blood

& an air eerie as fog on a lake

Where will I go

& what will I do?

Israel has been on my mind this past year

Everyone has their own pilgramages to make

& this may be mine

Inevitably winter will set in

& the end of another year will draw near

Too bad it won’t be a friend that I know

From way back when

& that’s just it

We can never once again

Walk the roads we once walked

For everything is ever changing

Just like the seasons

Autumn is drawing near

& she will leave me with

A crisp kiss
