When Love Ended


Inspired by Joe Cocker’s song “Leave Your Hat On”


Our love ended,

the day I understood,

you were a dashing dandy,

but not in love with just me –

you can leave your hat on.


It came on a day,

when walking in the park,

you swept off your hat,

for a pretty face passing by,

as far as I’m concerned –

you can leave your hat on.


We were dining one fine night,

you were such a dashing sight,

with your hat tipped low upon one brow,

how was I to know,

it was all a gallant show –

you can leave your hat on.


Dancing in the dark,

the brim of your hat,

touched against my forehead,

as you pulled me close,

I rolled my eyes,

no Fred Astaire were you –

but you can leave your hat on.


And so it has been,

as long as I have known you,

you and your hat are dashing,

but for me I lost love long ago,

so don’t think me cruel,

leave me as you once found me –

you can leave your hat on.


Friends we can always be,

don’t forget about me,

in nights that are lonely,

you can come to call,

I still love to see your bright eyes,

smiling and laughing at me,

together we can weather every storm

and be so very strong –

just leave your hat on.
