If Ever You Leave for a Moment
If ever you leave for a moment,
I shall bury my face in a cloud –
And wretched shall then be the Earth.
Only sorrow shall pour from above,
'n' wash the last footsteps away
Of the dream,
Which is parting with me
To become a Black Sunday.
Nor a dream,
Nor a cry.
If ever you leave for a moment.
The poem was made into a song performed by Impulse in 1984 (released in 1985). Watch on YouTube. The lyrics omit the last four verses but repeat some of the others.
