If you look ever so closely
Through this magnifying glass
You will see pieces of us
Parts we’ve dropped along the way.
I may never convince him
Maybe never regain his trust
But I will always love him
Even while he holds another.
Time is a fragrance we don’t forget
Love is a song we used to sing
Life took our friendship
Mistrust lost your ring.
We whisper in shadow at night
During the day we hardly recall
A past that led us to our future
Has now become our fall.
Creation led us to this time and space
Our dance was beautiful and refined
Hours ago I could swear I could hear you
Today our relationship is undefined.
If I could hold your hand
Across the ocean so blue
I would swear my loyalty
You would see our love is true.
Though only time and distance dispair
My heart grows heavy, my mind is grim
The only thing I want today
Is just a little piece of him.
