Just a Stroll

I sang and cooed a lullaby

I sang and sang until it died

The song held such a wild cry

Evening approached before I sighed


I held him in my arms so long

Forgetting things so I am told

Feeling my age and no less bold

I walked out of the room on a devilish stroll


I walked and walked, and walked some more

Walked so long I lost the floor

Walked enough I forgot what’s sore

Walking helped me lose the score


But then I walked into a soul

A soul just out, taking a stroll

She smiled lightly and eyed my toll

Saying nothing but filling the hole
