i wish we could return
life so barren, rich memories washing over me
i find i wonder, how long can this last?
i just want you to return: come back to me
i need it all: your eyes your face your flesh your voice,
they've all whispered to me
inside you've left, this torrid gift: your passion children love
i now hold magic within me
i possess our future imagined
permit this hope to draw me to life.
