Stargazer

Updated: Feb 20


The stargazer lilies are about to bloom -

Just as I’m going out of town.

When they burst open with their perfumed “boom,

I won’t be around.

It’s always when I’m going out of town

The sweet smell of success rises on the horizon.

How can I not be around

For the big meeting, or the cutey I’ve had my eyes on?

With the sweet smell of success rising on the horizon,

I cancel my plans time and again.

And the big meeting, and the cutey I’ve had my eyes.

For disappointments, they score a ten.

So do I can cancel my plans yet again -

So I don’t miss the burst-open into perfumed “boom”?

When will I stay the course – when?

The stargazer lilies are always about to bloom…
