Benson, Arizona

Bill Taylor

A million suns shine down,
But I see only one:
When I think I'm over you,
I find I've just begun.

The years move faster than the days,
There's no warmth in the light.
How I miss those desert skies,
Your cool touch in the night!

Benson, Arizona,
Blew warm wind through your hair.
My body flies the galaxy,
My heart longs to be there.

Benson, Arizona,
The same stars in the sky --
But they seemed so much kinder
When we watched them, you and I.

* * * * *

Now the years pull us apart:
I'm young and now you're old.
But you're still in my heart,
And the memory won't grow cold!

I dream of times and spaces,
I left far behind --
Where we spent our last few days,
Benson's on my mind.

Benson, Arizona,
Blew warm wind through your hair.
My body flies the galaxy,
My heart longs to be there.

Benson, Arizona,
The same stars in the sky --
But they seemed so much kinder
When we watched them, you and I.
