There are things between ......A Poem

One bright star between planets
or a planet between meteors

One lover between two friends
or a friend between lovers

There's always something between

The perfect innocence of blind love
of teens that we once were

Or the aged that we are now
with a life of reality between

I await your arrival in the wee dark hours
Between dusk and dawn

But as with all things between
I know there's something wrong

Is there always someone between two

One dream of perfection in love
one nightmare surreal

One misstep on the march of life
I've lost the gift of feel

Two hearts and a dream can never
come true

Turns out there was
even someone
between us two
