Over the Rainbow

Life made you
play it safe, gone was
my fun loving free spirit
partner in crime

Never did you give
pure love a chance
Ever an eye on the
Main chance

Frolicking naughty moves
You let life iron out
Creaseless, spic n span
quirky excitement ruled out

time, ups and downs failed
to change my bumbling headlong
impulses, I leapt over the rainbow as
you were left behind wistful n sad

¬†you’ve begun to live vicariously
making my small triumphs yours
downfalls remain squarely mine
both burning out candles , I let you be
