Lives intertwined

Someday you just wandered in
It was a decision deliberately made
The thought of a warm place to stay
And for just a moment not to be afraid

You were fed and you were loved
And gave the same love back to me
You could come and you could go
Had your freedom to some degree

One day winter turned into spring
The urge to leave was too great
You bowed your head and left my place
To accommodate your fate

Summer went, a chilly autumn came
And suddenly you were scratching at my door
With a pleading glimmer in your eyes
Asking for a winter’s home once more

Year after year you came and went
The feeling you always left behind
Was the love that was ever there
Because our lives are intertwined
