Grandfather's Time 

©2011 Andrew Calhoun, this recording from 2018.

Here's the scar from the time 
When we climbed to the roof 
Where the wood was rotten 
And we flew to the floor 

And here is the closet 
Where I asked you to hide me 
And I slumped in the darkness 
Until the game was over 

Here is the candle 
That we made for Mother's Day 
Through all of these years 
Flame never touched it 

And here are father's shoes 
See the spider web in one 
And dust on the toes 
From here to kingdom come 

Here is sister's little room 
With the private sink and mirror 
And the snowy alcove 
With the rocking chair 

And here is grandfather's time 
Where you lay on a Thursday 
Suspended in sunbeams 
In a sleeping barn 

And here's the first kiss 
That you ever have 
From the only one 
That you will ever love 

Here is the shadow 
And the hand grown thirsty 
And the patience unbound 
And the dream of the end
