When in a quiet moment would I extend
my arms while somehow I wish not pretend
I am always reminded as I was the years
before how life felt real without our fears.
Oh to wish there might be some solution,
the dissonance painful, begging absolution.
I noticed her eyes tonight did I remember
a certain gaze in love we might forever
Wake in the morning looking for her eyes
so might the life ahead omit all of the lies.
