So long

What used to be
lives in your eyes,
a tarnished key
holds all demise.
Yesterdays dream
lets out a sigh,
a silent scream
mutes inner cries.

Blink away tears
that smudge all gain,
erase old fears
that carry pain.
Cover both ears
feeling insane,
feel sorrow near
on this torn lane.

A time that passed
new lessons learned,
heartbeats are slashed
emotions burned.
Wishes have crashed
intentions turned,
forgiveness splashed
true love is earned.

Grateful for times
that brought me light,
pushed my steep climbs
warmed up my nights.
Secured my prime
made all wrongs right,
memories chime
my soul shines bright.
