Always fall in with what you're asked to accept. Take what is given, and make it over your way. My aim in life has always been to hold my own with whatever's going. Not against: with.


As the days grew longer

my longing for you grew stronger

the weeping willows

and trees

sway in the wind

making me weak in the knees

when I remember you lay

within the breeze

please! oh please!

my sweet Caroline

the taste of your Macintosh lips

crisp like the morning sun

bright like a new day begun

the smile in your eyes

like a starry night

not in the least bit slight

with care or worry

I had promised to those eyes

I would hurry

and marry you soon

but not before ‘morrow

you were gone

and I did rot with sorrow

so I sought after love

with some redemption

and naught, did I mention

a woman once I had

who tasted of summertime

but it was you, my Caroline

I still love, evermore

and now I shall wait for you in the wind

where you will be, I am sure
