Take me back,
Back when times were simple.
Back when the merest whisper soft touch of your lips made my heart flutter.
Take me to the time when the light in your eyes,
Reflected love, admiration, adoration.
Before people, money, and aspirations got in the way.
I miss the pull of two bodies that belong together,
Two entwined souls who meet,
And recognize one another.
I miss the feel of your hands on my body,
Guiding me, bestowing the truth of love to my eyes.
Time is not on our side any longer.
The first twinge of passion has gone,
No longer do we meld, blend, bend into one another,
You found a new way, a new life,
And never invited me to join.
