I feel these moments take us back
To remind us what our hearts now lack.
When we see familiar sights,
Somehow we feel the loss of light.
Flashing back to happy days
My heart is stabbed as mind relays
What meanings were, and now, are seen
As nothing like they used to be.
Drifting clouds kissed warming rays
I watched it all within your gaze
But when I saw the sky today
All I felt was my dismay.
I can’t enjoy a summers breeze
I can’t enjoy the rolling sea
I can’t enjoy the evening stars
Because this life, I thought, was ours.
New meanings need to change my eyes
To force things out and say goodbye
What is it in myself that grasps
To beauty that was in the past?
I say it’s gone and done, it’s over.
But everything reminds me of her.
There is no path that I can see…
From my mind I try to flee.
Am I afraid of letting go?
Or is this merely candles glow?
Flickering on the walls within
Going out with what has been.
Time is changing all of me
Who is the me that soon will be?
I fear that I’ll no longer care
How the sun would light her hair.
Is it normal to move on?
To forget the past… Forget someone?
For who are we but broken hearts
Forever falling to the start…
