Days Gone By

The day seems long 
Long enough to earn it a weary lot 
Weary days like those days just before the trumpet 
Trumpet; not of an elephant, but of Zion
Zion; where peace shall abound in fullness
Fullness and profusion of Love alike

Love; sounds familiar but distant 
Distant to me since I had none 
And I’ve had none since it left
Left, just the way it had come
Came crashing into my life like a misguided Rocket
And leaving earnestly with the speed of a prodded missile 

I knew better 
Better than chasing slight shadows
She’ll ne’er come back
Not love, but the person that brought it to me
