Goodnight dearest friend
Maybe someday we’ll meet again
When our weary souls stand tall
And our alkaline tears don’t fall
At least, not to the floor
Because I promise I’ll catch them
Since I could not before.
But for now I’ll settle for the image
Of you staring back scrupulously
With a jaded, edgy glow
As if to say, “Impress Me!”
As your dark eyes gaze right at me
And I smile a smile of joyous glee
With the power to thwart all agony.
I’m trapped in an incessant moment
Where time promptly went away
And I’m left to repeat
The same intractable day
With a constant yearn
For time to return
800 serene sunsets on display.
Reconciliation, such a noble goal
For when time returns
My only prayer for you and I
Is two harmonious, humble souls
Where your gut-wrenching grief is gone
The perilous past has perished
And pain stays trapped as we move on.
