& ten years gone behind

after those sad times

coming to see you there in the hospitals

lying thin frail

knowing it was but time

days or weeks

& now its ten years gone

I guess I found my way back to you

some way for us to forgive the past

though I could never get you

as you understand me

different times between us

too much time across the years

I was determined to live without fear

even if that meant saying goodbye

& those others you left behind

their hands remain closed

its fists not fun for these

& it is too long to be living in hope

for sleeping people to wake
