In the Distance

Off in the distance the sun is setting,
while here on the porch I sit regretting;
Each moment that slipped through my fingertips,
especially when I last kissed your lips.

I could have begged for you to stay,
letting my love shine in every way;
But off you went in a misty haze,
leaving me stumbling through the maze.

Never knowing what truly pulled us apart,
and wondering why you broke my heart;
Perhaps life is simply a mystery,
with answers buried beneath the sea.

While watching the colors of a summer's sky,
I finally decide to say goodbye;
My eyes are moist from latent tears,
as I vow to conquer lingering fears.

Everlasting love is hard to find,
with someone who'll live within my mind;
To grow with me as years move on,
and share the setting of the sun.

When I was little I used to concoct these imaginary scenarios of tear-laden farewells going off to war. Now I'm a 'mute' hugger. Whatever the reasons, good-byes usually suck. Well-expressed Fran!

There's a song called "Don't Like Goodbyes" which is on Barbra Streisand's PEOPLE album from years ago, and what was true then is still true today ! Thanks for the kindly review, "Mute-Hugger" ! (lol).
