an original haiku song by Dan Simpson

play the mp3 file (5.1mb)



my hands are alone
waiting – wanting
to feel again

these Friday nights
are empty
without someone

that girl again
will this time be
something new?

we meet
for the first time
once again


acting careful
comes off bad
who is the real me?

rush of feelings
I tell her
my middle name

this class time
a beautiful girl
in my mind

closed eyes
first kiss


our town
we take off

driving her car
to her songs

lying around
my camera
doing close ups

concrete jungle
her wedding mag


we find a house
to hold our things
our love
