Poetic License: Collage Sinatra
The last night we called it a day by day,
falling more in love with you was only
make believe. Every time after time
I told myself that rainy day and night
you were the one deep inside of me,
all the way and under my skin, beginning
to beguine all over again the once
upon a time after time when we were young
and seventeen. Strangers in the night and day
beneath the moon and sun, we did it your way
and now you’ll never know what time it was
or where or when it seemed to be you took
all or nothing at all of me and put
my dream away for another night and day.
