Once upon a heartbeat

Once upon a soft sigh

Five times round the sun

Almost once around again

Memories wet with melting snow

Seasons changed and so did we

Primal music wrapped us in its arms

Tones and chords that strained us

Amplified by mutual need

We exchanged broken parts

We tried to find a melody

Our voices broke with youth and sadness

Notes made heavy by the past

Red roses bloomed

Passion with its red thorns

Beautiful and sad

Beautiful and fragile

Through a breaking mirror we held hands

Cracks let in golden light, it shone so brightly

As the shadows moved away, so did we

Deafening distance clouded words and eyes

Threads of sunlight woven into words

Could not overcome the silence in you

Threads of sunlight woven into words

Could not pierce the darkness in me

Memories wet with melting snow

Seasons changed and so did we

Once upon a heartbeat

Once upon a soft sigh

Five times round the sun

Almost once around again

Winter turns to spring

Hearts freeze or thaw in silence

Just like memories

I hope that the sun shines

Upon yours
