LOVERS AND STRANGERS

Crayons and movies
strawberry shortcake for two
these are things
that belong to me and you
whispers and seaside
a time by the bay


Seconds to moments
things come what may

Airports and highways
always in between
no one knows
the distance
we have seen
memories and moments
lay deep in my soul

Moments to hours
things come what may






Friends lovers and strangers  
we became all as one
forgiving and needing
the softness of the sun
but knowing and knowing
we could never be


Sunset to daylight
Moments we were free

And now
that the years
have swept us aside
I watch to the door
surrendering my pride
needing to know
that the seconds will end

You are the reason
I have lived every day


IRISH
