It's been a while

It’s been a while, there are wrinkles now around

Your eyes, your nose, your beautiful smile. And on the bench the

Remains of the day, will we face that? You asked. We may yet, I said

We still may. Now there’s time and there’s distance, and a rhythm for sound

And the shackles that bound

Man to beast, earth and sky, heart

And arrow.

It’s been a while now, there are boxes in memories and there’s dust

In the chambers’ deposit, full of anger and lust. It’s been all eroded

Corroded

By the kindness of angels, those devils that pass.

And on the lake the remains of the day whenst I prayed

Whenst I layed in my boat. Afloat, or just the dreaming?

Will we face that? You asked. We may yet, I said once,

We still may.
