How can you say you know me
When you have only seen my skin,
ANd not the untamed world I hide
That’s growing deep within.
You haven’t been here for long
To watch a new life start,
You haven’t seen the colour of my eyes
Or the little hole in my heart.
Don’t mark me with your foot print
If you plan to leave too soon,
And only want to know me
When my plants are all in bloom.
Because the birdsong might be pretty
But it’s not for you they sing,
And if you think my winter is too cold
You dont deserve my spring.
