Said and Done
When, how, where was I
when the dream had come?
When it's all said and done
it's the emptiness that stays.
Life moves so fast,
quick in the years that pass.
What was I thinking?
We had thought our time was forever
full of the laughter and tears treasured,
every day a joy and pleasure
each word and hug tenuously measured;
time doesn't wait
and we can miss the moment when we hesitate
then suddenly it's over regrets too late,
smile for me, just once more
when love takes away the pleasures of life
and everything is said and done
and love slips away, gone.
