Two years have passed since we climbed
This knoll, now weathered by moss and time,
We hadn’t slept, consumed by lust
And we ventured here to sup the dusk.
And every time I went away
Whilst travelling, I’d count the days
Until we were once more a pair
And no longer yearning for you not there.
But history is writ and done
And youth is wasted on the young,
I’m still quite scared of how we change
Could I promise not to stray?
In all the places I’ve seen and gone
Self fulfillment will ne’er be won,
The harder I search the more it dawns,
That you’re the one who keeps me warm.
Two years have passed and I’m back to try,
But sitting here I want to cry,
This land that for me is you,
Holds me not and leaves me blue.
And on every street I hope to see,
Your smiling face calling me,
And in all the familiar haunts we went
There’s no record of you, no mark no, no scent
Back home to where we both did meet,
Our favorite pub on our favorite street,
And we would always be a two,
You and me, me and you.
Finally I find a soul
One who knew us both quite well,
He’s sent me to a place in town
Where I can see where you are now.
Lord above please curb the pain,
The only place I find your name
Is on the church remembrance wall
Your name in letters and nothing more.
I’ve never felt so low and lost
I want you near at any cost,
To breathe your soul, to touch your skin
Please open heaven and let me in.
