Let The Sunset Soothe

It is there for you forever more

The sun sets

But you don’t know it

You don’t see it

Like you used to

When the rains came

When the thunder clapped

And we stood at the tunnel

Where we didn’t want the rain

To stop

And never asked

For the train to come

Separate us

From the rain

That one of us

Didn’t want to end

And how was I to know

That it was the end

The last wonderful time

The West Portal Muni stop

Of course

And yes I tried to make the rain last

But in the end

All you wanted was

Me to go away

On the Muni train alone

When the rain stopped

Which it did

Too soon
