Time over time,
Past time and I wondered,
Was how I remembered them,
How they remembered me,
Fear of existing in memories,
fear of not being in them.
Time changed me,
Everything but the soul,
Still I hold dear all that I did before I was I,
Love’s forever I heard,
Yet in the knowledge of it
Still couldn’t fathom the matter of its weight.
Growing into a more self sufficient Island,
Only time can tell when I’ll dip my feet in the waters
Just to allow myself to feel all that my soul has caged in.
Once in a while I experience me in their memories,
In how they look at me,
Once in a lifetime I hear I see all that I’ve been wondering
And still once in a while it knocks the air out of me
How more dear they still hold onto all that I was
All that Iam like theirs nothing like me.
The ways I love you are less the ways I see you continuously endear me, never once did I fade from you even as I lived on.
