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.
