for SATB mixed chorus
ca. 3 minutes
Text: Valerie Albrighton
No performance yet. Be the one to premiere this piece!
If I sit here content while you are gone,
Reading my book, sipping a glass of wine,
Stroking the neighbour’s cat who deigns to call,
It’s not because I miss – or love – you less,
But I have learned that if you go away
You surely will return; and there’s a store
Of times we share together on this seat
Enough to feed us both, with days to spare.
