A Memory


I sat there drifting
The fire spat like a cat
It seemed to carry my eyes
Held them in it’s sparkle

Drifted them upward 
Where dreams took over
There was your face 
That laugh of long ago

Across a table at our disco
There you, as in a dream
Was this true my talk denied
I stuttered to start again

This was in my mind
I held you, could only stare
But that was short 
As I spoke to you

St Patricks day it was
Time no friend of mine
It past and I had to go
A beauty in Ice and snow

Days rolled on by 
You stayed with me
Times found me cry
I had to leave you there

I can only say to this day
That you are the same 
Held in a vacuum of time
A vision of my need

Time heals all they say
Well what do you think 
That up to this day
You are the same

It is now so long
Thoughts still carry on
Many years plus three
I believed you were for me
