The Eucalyptus Tree

Underneath the eucalyptus tree
The smoothest skin I ever felt,
The truest words I ever spoke
As the wine replaced rain
And your kiss brought the dawn.

I dreamt we wouldn’t fade
But fate got in the way,
A pile of raked up leaves
Instead of real decisions,
Walls of ill thought out excuses,
Furniture wet with tears.

Underneath the eucalyptus tree
I had the chance to steal the sun
But all I took were worries,
You had the chance to change my mind
But all you changed was the weather.
