In a corner of a pleasant wood
Shimmering with sparkling waters stood
A languid pond, resplendent in the daylight -
It shimmered to the light, unmindful of my plight.
While I here reminisce, wanting to go back-
To be once more charmed by what I lack.
But I cannot go back, for there someone
Had built a wall so tall I’m undone.
The past and the present cannot meet
I cannot go back or my memories greet
I must sit here and write to dreams goodbye
and end my days upon a sigh.
