You never forget love

The day I saw you drenched in mornings sunlight,

Smelling the blossom on ball gown bushes,

For a brief moment you were young once again

I caught your eye, and memories flooded back


A strange romantic notion caught me

Like a bird who has spent his life in a cage

Suddenly freed, yet this cage I fear to abandon

But silent love is noble, and I have taken a life time to know this

For I have spent my life lingering in the darkness between the stars

But now I can look beyond our age

For we are two well worn shoes,

Comfortable and secretly loved


We are silent lovers, who have spent a life time together,

Living in our dreams and thoughts, speaking different silences,

Which say all that is needed to know?

For our souls will always listen and our hearts will always be in love.

And only you and I will know
