While We Were Away
I thought out loud, while wondering the time, could we wander too far.
Was there ever a recall that might suggest our lives could star
In quiet romantic sagas, one that hearts would break and mend
the eyes of onlookers, wishers, the fantasies might all commend.
In a different time, when love is free, we did harmonize
A certain beauty in elegance, our touch felt ever wise,
Though today only memory might allow nostalgic ties.
When now I close my eyes, only the shadows of doubt may mar.
For to know love is freedom, is truth, one soul may recommend.
While he might acknowledge amidst the turmoil, endearing cries.
