What did we do when silence meant forever
the peace we found when only together
we might imagine our lives meant eternal
until one day sweet fantasy became fatal
to the beauty of love, the remarkable trail
we walked together a passion distant and frail.
There comes a quiet solace that we rely
upon to find our peace, no longer imply
such is the facade of such sweet reality
drawn by love, in a visual simplicity.
