Drowning in a pool of my inner self
Unable to remember, to see clearly.
Time rob me of all I knew, everything I hold dear
Erased, like the dew that slips through at day break
So does memories of you.
I held them once; your memories,
They kept me through the years
Fading slowing, I tried to hold on.
I felt them now!
Deep down in the grey remains, I see your face
Smiling, bidding me to remember
To reach for what’s no longer there.
I reached out and touched loneliness
I smiled; knowing I can’t miss what’s not there.
Emptiness has filled the void where you once lived.
I knew you once!
I knew you when time was on my side
When promises burst open
And I fell deeply In love with you.
Now, remember me
As I was then
As I am now©
