Simplicity of the ABC



As years pass by, it comes to prom


A knows, B clearly understands


As beats fade into maudlin songs


A simple act of holding hands


In crowds they push in and through


While being deafened by the bands


They won’t get lost joined by the bond


A simple act of holding hands


Their fingers weave, chained by the rings


It’s time for making future plans

It’s not as scary when you feel

A simple act of holding hands


A tiny C is now brought

A stork meets AB as it lands

C cannot speak, but what it knows -


A simple act of holding hands


The flowers slowly turn to dust


They scatter past along the sands


What’s kept forever ever more-


A simple act of holding hands.
