Not So Long Ago



I remember from long ago … I remember you from long ago.
I remember your hair the color of honey and as soft as silk and
the fragrance of sunshine on a warm summers day.
I remember from long ago.

I remember from long ago … I remember you from long ago.
I remember missing you and not knowing why; only wishing you
would come home quickly to hold me and then to sit and play.
I remember from long ago.

I remember from long ago … I remember you from long ago.
I remember when you met him and what joy it did bring and
how proud I was that he came to take us away.
I remember from long ago.

The years raced by quickly … I remember it seems from a lifetime ago.
I remember you leaving and missing you; how my heart ached from a
pain I wish I never would know.
I remember and ache from the pain of not so long ago.
