It’s Been So Long, 11/6/2016, Deon Mumple
It’s been so long, my dear, I still recall
That easy laugh, your smiling eyes, our songs
We start to talk, remembering it all-
The good times from our past…it’s been so long
The lyrics of the love story we shared
Days, nights, all our sweet dreams and bitterness
A wonder: we survived all that we dared,
Parting, each wanting badly to stay friends,
Time flowed, a breeze, a drought, a hurricane,
A life from dust, to dust returned. I died.
Then, loneliness dispelled, just like my pain:
I breathed my first breath, born again, and cried
The griefs, hopelessness, gone. Joyous tears flow.
Unexpected, life turns. I love you so.
