A LOT HAS CHANGED

Once upon a time are those times now
We were too young to understand
That there’s something we needed more?
Did we share love truly from the heart?
A lot has changed, since time passed by

The rains have come and long gone
These leaves, once fresh, are withering
That tree that formed for us, a shade
Now stand without leaves or beauty
A lot has changed, since time passed by

The summer has come, drying up all things
My bones crack beneath my shrinking flesh
My lips bear wounds without moisture
My eyes are dim and sight difficult
A lot has changed, since time passed by

In my heart are memories of time long gone
Those times mean more to me I can least say
You hope to slip and I cannot hold you back
If you’re treated badly please, come home
A lot may’ve changed; yet we can go back in time

    I love this! The way you've used the seasons to parallel change brings out the theme very well. And the part where you say 'we can go back in time' -it signifies that as humans there are some things we can learn to relearn, all is not lost. Very well written Reuben!
