Her-Dark-Side

''You Live And Learn''

    

Once, not long ago, my head was filled

With joss-stick smoke and flowers and mystery

And I was rather young and glossy bright;

I felt that love is All, and searched for love

So I could start to Be.

  

Well, here I am, not quite so young,

But certainly not old and not yet wise.

And I have found love, tripped on it one night,

Scooped it up, pinned it down and nailed it fast;

And now I find to my immense suprise

That I was more myself, more Me,

In those sad lonely days when I was free.
