A long lost love I hear you say,
A man I craved that went away,
A way to cope with my own personal pain,
For he loved me without gain.

He was there for me in my tears and in plight,
And when I no longer had the will to fight,
I’d shut my eyes and see his beautiful face,
And temporarily the pain would erase.

Then one day it went away,
I didn’t fight to make it stay.
It hurt for a while that it wasn’t there,
Didn’t it love me, didn’t it care.

It’s like we were made to forget,
How we held each other and wept,
Or lifted each other up when one fell,
Two pieces of a jigsaw that worked so well.

Then different names wanted a part,
In a place they didn’t belong or start,
I remember places that are no longer there,
Lived so many lifetimes, it didn’t seem fair,
I had different names and lovers in those days,
But there was always one that always stays,
By my side never to harm,
To love, to protect to be my calm.
