seeing faces in picture albums
and little notes from first grade…
but that's all that's left of the you
a person that at one time I knew…

time really does change us all…
that pang of loss still hits…
reverberating in the depths of my soul.

hammers hit, slam, crash
my heart, the pictures, everything
just falls to p i e c e s
so much for being strong…

but for some reason, it
doesn't hurt so badly as I thought
it would…as it had in previous years.

but I think missing the love,
the smiles, the youth and the past life
will always remain in my soul…
u n t o u c h e d…u n b r o k e n

but just as I moved from that house,
life has moved on as well…
and sometimes…

we have to move on, too.
