Here Again


Once upon a time we danced in fields of heather, maypole ribbons in the air...

I wore yellow flowers in my hair,

I think I remember the tune we hummed

You held me that night while I slept, drunk on dandelion wine

Whispering softly into my ear that you were mine...

I think I recall the promise that you made

The truths of ancient whispers in the night's thick wind

Please forgive my parting my love, but this love has no end

I still feel the sting of your tears on my face

Lifetimes have past us like horses on a carousel

You surprised me each time we meet, each time I fell

I remember your smile

Each time as sweet as the last, a feeling of certainty mixed with denial

Impossible circumstances, each time a trial

I remember that you called it stubborn, while I called it determination

I know the rhythm of your heart's song, beating a melody with my own

Hauntingly familiar, soothing the song

I recall a childhood lullaby bringing me home

Finally your lips touched mine once more, with the tenderness of the morning dew

Falling silently onto the morning glory to brighten her hue

I remember your sweetness

Lifetimes of searching, loving, parting. It is our time again

Do not despair when the winter brings us to the end

I remember our parting

Spring will give chase to winter's torment

A summer of rediscovering love and an autumn of growing content

I remember the way my love, we will be here again.
