Caught In Time

Caught inside the silence of the ringing of the bells In that silent hush that punctuates the sound. Searching for an anchor in a place I once knew well. But I just ended up on unfamiliar ground. I was reaching back to see If I could find you. Maybe say some things I should have said before But then I thought what if You said let me remind you What we had was good But I need a little more. There no sense in dwelling on what could have been. The people in the pictures Have both moved on But when I close my eyes To try to block the image You show up In the words Of our favorite song. All my friends suggest that I should be moving on. And just be thankful for the time however brief But when we took our vows We spoke about forever. And forever is pretty long When you're not at peace.
