If the stars are unreachable,
Some truths unimpeachable,
And I’m unteachable about most everything,
Then tell me why,
We all cry when regarding the end of spring,
If parting is not goodbye.

Tell me what it is,
The end is a beginning, the sages say.
But these pages flutter like kisses,
And die, oh, yes, they die away.

These aren’t the days of new proposals,
The wine and the roses,
Are off the table, I’m afraid.
It’s a hell of a mistake, but heaven knows it’s made.

If the soul is untouchable,
Far-off lands undiscoverable,
And I’m unlovable beyond most everything,
Then tell me why,
We all cry when starting out on the wing,
If parting is not goodbye.
