Take Me Back


It had been months since I laid eyes on her

Though I saw her often in my dreams

A colorful movie of nightly memories

Her hair flowing, scented summer breeze


But there she was just, as pretty as always

And I hoped she would remember me

The last time I saw her was a sad affair

Though we had loved so desperately


I left with but a few kind words

And hibernated the winter away

In my heart, spring has returned

Seeing her again on this sunny day


I take her hand, a remembered warmth

I give great apologies as I wipe her eyes

I tell her all the sweetest words

And offer my poor alibis


It must be true love, when she smiles back

And our hearts again become one

One touch and her engine roars to life

And we ride off in the setting sun

    So lovely. Have you put her away, or are you hoping for another sunny day or two before you say your temporary goodbye?
