I’ll Never Know

I remember the room   With the TV on

And you sitting asleep before you were gone

We watched Thousands Cheer and Lily Mars
Strike Up the Band and Babes in Arms
Brush light on the walls  Crash against the glass
And I’d watch your ash    Fall into your lap
I loved to watch the ghosts
Of cigarette smoke   Turning lithe and blue
And I loved  the time we spent alone
That you never knew
Now I have a room  with a TV on
I try to stay awake before I’m gone
Sometimes I don’t but I can feel you there
When I’m losing track and I don’t react
My mothers ghost
Of cigarette smoke curling calm and blue
And I love us being alone in the TV glow
When I think you don’t know but you do
