So Long

9 years since I have seen my family

The ones of blood

Of shared roots, and skinned knees

 

9 years full of sowing and reaping

Each to his own

So long, yet never the sound of weeping

 

9 years, and likely quite a few more

Paths no longer cross

Life was not a game, and there was no score

Now I Sleep

Now I sleep in trust

I relinquish this day

A memory that never was

Forgotten as so many before

 

A world in a faded dream

Meaning is an ethereal thing

A rear view speeding from view

 

There once was a man

Or so I was told

One who is well recalled

 

Words speak of deeds

I have never seen

Pulled from a past

Echoes of what has been
