Letting go

How did we lose our way

Did we linger too long

In the wrong places

Is is too late for the olive branch to lay

*

Many kisses,

admiring glances

Were part of our every day

Now sorrow, dispiritedness

Dapple the horizon, with spots of grey

*

Why did we let us drown

With different eyes,

I can see now,

we let go

We let each other down

*

We turned the volume down

Our ears heard no sound

We stopped talking

We stopped hearing

Is it too late to turn it around

*

Thinking back to those early days

Enthralled in each other

Tenderness in each others gaze

Minutes turning into hours

Night turning into mornings rays

*

Friday nights glasses of wine

Weekends a lazy takeaway

Falling asleep

You body laying next to mine

*

Seeing the world side by side

Encounters, good times

affairs of the heart, a hell of a ride

*

Memories so beautiful

My heart, it sings

Recalling tender moments and

The wonderful things

*

10 years ago

In love we were falling

Tenderness and passion

Were perfectly enthralling

*

In time

Our thoughts became estranged

Unconsciously

How did it happen

A life rearranged

*

Then the time came

We could no longer fight it

A seperate path we took

Our confused minds

now quiet

*

We mirrored each other

Without a voice

Reflecting, rejecting, unseeing

Could this be a reckless choice

*

The hardest part is letting go

slipping from our safe embrace

Respecting, allowing each to grow

In our own silent hiding place

*

Is it too late to turn back now

Another chance to try

A dignified love

A love we both allow

*

What is meant to be

Will always find a way ❤️❤️❤️
