A Game of Fools


I look across the lake where we once stood
And with such foolish hearts, “forever” spoke.
So long we lingered in perfume of wood
And chased the streams betwixt the pine and oak…
But then, upon a stone the waters broke, 
Two lovers split, and lonely sail along.
Then turn to call a name, but only choke
And give no lyrics to adorn this song;
O how could you and I have gone so wrong?
I know that love is just a game of fools,
But how I thought that we could fix the rules
And cheat some peace within each others arms…
I look across that lake, and I can see
Two fools in love that dance in memory.
