I Knew

A funny thing happened,

On the way to today,

A hint of tomorrow,

I glimpsed yesterday,

A feeling of knowing,

What was to be said,

A sense of foreboding,

A suspicion of dread,

A shadow that stayed,

Too close to the wall,

A suggestion of menace,

That was too close to call,

And the sun didn’t shine,

As bright as it should,

The breeze didn’t weave,

As light as it could,

The rain didn’t soothe,

The heat on the ground,

The wind didn’t rise,

It ne’r made a sound,


It was a funny thing really,

But I knew it would come,

I knew you would leave,

I knew we were done.
