Mint Julep

White petals fall around you on your wedding day
Dismay is all you say to me
Blinding light, searing hope
What happened to the girl I used to know?

The night is young, but I grow old

Spearmint leaves wrapped in gold
That once inviting kiss is now so cold

I’m petrified to go alone

Darling, why must you go?
Your innocence is all that I can show
Oh, oh
