Looking Back

All those endless miles
of winding, lonely road
are now far behind me.
Each time I turn around
to take a look, I’m not alone,
you’re there beside me.

Thoughts we always shared
and tried to speak about,
they now remind me
of those nefarious demons that we heard,
but now I know
they can’t divide me.

Funny how it seems so long ago
our other lives
they start crumbling;
thought we’d reached so high
but without warning, lofty peaks
they started tumbling


Just made out the light
through tiny cracks that somehow formed
amongst the rubble.
I tried to search for you
untill I found you, nice and safe
inside your bubble.

I fought with what I thought
was all my might;
I couldn’t fail, I had to reach you.
Diminishing in strength,
I thought I’d lost, then suddenly
knew what I must do.

I realised, with my real eyes
that shield that now contained you
wasn’t there when
I’d first gazed down upon yourself,
or so it seemed; So could it be
I’d lost my sight then.

Was it just I couldn’t see
the truth that lay in front of me
all along the while?
Perception is a tricky thing,
a soul can cry while your mind sings;
Just a sad smile.

It took near catastrophe to find
the only way inside your space
was closing down soon.
I plunged my heart inside the fire
ignored the usual safety signs;
I knew there was room

for both of us to live and share
those thoughts once more; was almost
a new introduction.
The light was back within your eyes,
however dim I recognised
how we could begin.

I reached your hand, you clutched mine tight,
both of us holding on for life;
the one we longed for.
Like in a dream, our wings came out,
we leapt in faith and flew up high;
now we could both soar.

When finally back down on land,
we found our balance had returned;
to walk now was easy.
No limits would we ever know,
this newfound love would break them all;
Our spirits now free.
