paths should intersect, taking us by surprise,
there be a touch of sadness reflected
regret for a summer lost, in a far-gone
song abruptly ended before we learned the words to sing.
use the words “How are you?” in a casual sort of way
my inner feelings by holding them at bay.
tread simple conversation so as not to step on toes
around our common past and watch the way we pose.
should cause our paths to cross, setting us face to face
we recall some of the emotions that time
while I ‘m sure that I’d be dying to speak out,
how I truly feel and leave you with no doubt.
pledge of “love forever” that I once made to you
Still sits embedded in my heart and the words they
still ring true.
