Spoken In Past Tense

This life, it seems is best

When spoken in past tense

Like the memories we made

Even the ones that started to fade

Or the new ones that we already have created

Either you or I, today or yesterday

It doesn't matter, all the same

That we are happier together 

Than when we sleep alone in cloudy weather

Or the days and weeks I'm gone

And you and I both long 

For the days spent on the couch

Your head on my shoulder,

Mine on your chest

These moments together are the best

And knowing that they could last forever

Is the proof that our love, nothing can sever 


Author's Notes/Comments: 

The first in many many years. I recently came across some old songs and poems and got inspired to write again.  This time to my wife, Barbara.
