I’ve known you my whole life but you’re a stranger.
The days we spent together, far removed.
The hopes that we would maybe be together;
Your premonition quashed, my hesitance proved.
I see you in the street and you don’t know me.
We talk along the edges, the depth has gone.
But still there is a sparkle that makes me wonder
Why of the dreams we had, the truths were none.
If life had been quite different we’d have made it.
Maybe we’d be living happy, side by side.
But all those hopes we had are deconstructed
And I’m okay that future was denied.
