Then...

it was easy loving you…
we were like clouds in the sky drifting
then we met
you were the sun moon and stars
me the sky

life was so carefree and lazy then…
midnight strolls
along the wet sand
talking and loving
loving and knowing
learning about love

days were like warm sunshine we basked
in the radiance of us
me wanting you and you wanting me
we were wonderfully happy
then

i used to sit in the sand and watch you
sleeping in the afternoon sun
i would also lie awake at night
and think warm thoughts of you

i still do that now
only i look through misty eyes
as you go your own separate way
at night bittersweet memories still
wander about my clouded mind

you are gone now a part of my past
tucked away on a shelf in my mind
once in awhile
i gently take you from that shelf
and hold you in my arms
once again I would love you

go back my love go back
please hide yourself in the folds of memory
for i cannot bear to want you today
