Little Sad Ghost
There's a little sad ghost in my house
I saw her move softly down the
To the room at the end where love lies
And her lover lies there not at all.
She turns back the covers of her queen
And climbs between the cold wintry sheets
Naked and alone she turns out the light
Her pillow held tight in defeat.
Sleep eludes her through the night
And damp is the pillow where she cried
For the passion's death in her marriage
And the woman in her who died.
