She Comes (poem)

Updated on July 21, 2012

Here in the quiet of another day

It comes to me this echo of some past

Insistent shadow meaning meant to last

This something that a boy just threw away

-

She comes to claim the emptiness of time

This faceless figure hidden by my tears

Whose faithful heart has learned to conjure years

A song so sweet reminder of the crime

-

And there I sit a captive of my pain

As she recalls the kisses and the smile

Yes we were truly happy for awhile

Till so unclear would start this strange refrain

-

And though it hurts I’m glad she’s here with me

That like that boy this man will never be
