Memories of You

It's been a while since you moved away...

If there was a time I'd wish to have back

It would be the year before you left

I didn't realize how much you mattered to me

Until you were gone

And even when you went

I still tried to stay in touch

But it wasn't the same.

 

The wheezy laugh,

The glassed smile,

Those hours you spent

Banging on metal

It was a good time,

A time of intellectual awakening

How I wish you were back...

 

But I know

Times are different

And the world keeps spinning

And a daydream

Is not Reality,

But even as the memories get foggier

Even as I add up the years,

The memories of you are still there...
