No matter where I’ve been
No matter what I’ve seen
You are the sunrise and the sunset of my life!
What the two of you had is over,
Stop sending letters of love to my love!
Is it true? Has the Ceiling forgotten me?
Since the day you left many things have happened,
Now there’s a spiral stairway, and a second floor.
The window has decided to be bricked
After letting you go; so in love
With you it was.
PS: And a second ceiling of course, and a new raven.
PPS: Have you found a new home?
