Back in the Days

Back in the days of love’s beginning
you used to share the everything with me
the good, the bad, the in between
of all you were and all you knew to be.

You said you wanted to fly free
within the arms of love with me forever
but now it seems forever that you're gone
Now the empty place where you reside
encompasses one lonely particle of sand
that used to dwell upon the shores
of love that lives forevermore.

The time has come and gone and come
as it always does, in endless cycles
but you’ve chosen yet again to live
within your walls of utter separation.
On rare occasion, you allow a memory
of all the love we shared in utter unity
to enter in the chosen place and time
of your present day reality.

And you wonder why I am not thrilled
that you bothered to remember this at all,
when back in the days of love’s beginning,
you used to share the everything with me:
the good, the bad, the in between
of all you were and all you knew to be.

Now, no matter how I search
I only find again that you are
gone away from me...
