A Groovy New Rhyme

A Groovy New Rhyme

(A Villanelle for Winton)

 

I wish we could have had, just a little more time

There were so many things, left unspoken

A little more time, for a groovy new rhyme

 

A few more years, would have been sublime

But only silence remains, the rest is bespoken

I wish we could have had, just a little more time

 

I wish we could have had, a few more dreams to climb

And that your joyous laugh, could be gently awoken

A little more time, for a groovy new rhyme

 

You left on your own terms, a dancing pantomime

Despite your battles, you remained unbroken

I wish we could have had, just a little more time

 

A little more time, just a little more time

For a few more words, which now remain unspoken

A little more time, for a groovy new rhyme

 

People spend their life in love with a dime

Restlessly embracing a sickly cold token

But I wish we could have had, just a little more time

A little more time, for a groovy new rhyme
