Those eyes that met across a crowded room
No longer flash so brightly when we meet,
Seems time has tarnished all the youthful bloom
And cynicism turned the snow to sleet.
The thought that something true had fought and won
Is now a concept lost within my heart,
Your silence tells me we are spent and done;
Your silence rips my aching soul apart.
A score of years means nothing after all,
The hopes and dreams we shared have lost their truth.
It’s me who once again must play the fool
And you who reign victorious and aloof.
I understand your life must be with her
But don’t forget the strength of what we were.
