[Old Man]

Is it too soon to tell you that I love you?
The way your eyes are drenched in wrinkles all around
The aqua net curls that frame your tiny forehead
This lonely winter is starting to thaw

It’s been a long one this time around
But you’re my crocus you are
You’re pushing through frozen ground
The surest sign that life goes on

[Aunt Sara]

I don’t know you, I can’t place your face
I had a love once with a mouth just like yours
Maybe you are him, maybe, I don’t know
This wild ocean is starting to calm

It’s gotten hard to hold on for long
But you’re my Poseidon you are
You’re holding off the treacherous tide
And I can see beyond the waves


Is it too soon to tell you that I love you?
We’re getting old now, we might as well say
Grab a hold of life and love while we’re still here
This little fire is starting to burn

When you’re close to the end
It’s better to have a lamp light your way
I’ll be your lamp, I’ll light the dark
And love will carry us home
