Dogwood Days

(david m. bailey)
1996
david m. bailey
Late on a chilly April evening
The blossoms had just kissed the moon goodnight
it was a time to explore the timeless mystery
No rush to greet the morning light

We took a walk down streets that were deserted
Turned the corner when we got to memory lane
You were listening to the echoes of your childhood
I was listening to the blossoms singing this refrain...

These are dogwood days
Made in heaven for delivery on earth
These are dogwood days
Just in time for our rebirth

With feet of clay we went walking in a green field
Searching for a place we could belong
you pointed out a silent sparrow
I pointed out his silent song...

These are dogwood days
Made in heaven for delivery on earth
These are dogwood days
Just in time for our rebirth

You know they only come once a lifetime
though we're told they come back once a year
But the truth of the dogwood is it grows in your soul
a reminder of an ancient graceful tear

I don't know where you went after that evening
Sometimes i don't even know where i am now
But we're both one step closer to forever
As the blossoms keep on singing to the clouds...
these are dogwood days…
