Ten Years

Written by: Debbie Duncan

Ten years to go he told me so 
But that was last May wasn't it

Though my heart still beats all the while
Still the blood rushes up from down below

And I get sweaty and can not speak as though 
It were yesterday he touched me so sweet
I felt safe and secure with him like inside a womb  

I watched for him over long days on end
Though I could not see for the earth did not move

I thought I saw a glimpse of him 
Moving towards me

But that was ten years ago 
They told me so
