Banjo by Mitchell Shimnowski
Oh, the sun beamed down on our promising love
Oh, the silly little riverbed gave way
Oh, the loons called out and the sea came by
She waved, "hello" but we had to say, "goodbye"
But we said, "goodbye"
Oh we said, "goodbye"
I've moved many times and threw tiny stones
The ancient grains fed us, they fed my bones
Lead me not astray oh the nightingale
Hear my cry, hear my call
(Oh please hear)
It will reveal my fate
and we said goodbye
we said goodbye
Will you remember, is this lost forever
What did you find, what did you bury
Tiny feathers, trinkets, and shiny rocks we threw
Is there a body in the ground?
