Drifting Away

Once our hearts were strong
That was yesterday
One thing is sure
We’re drifting away
Springtime promises
Gifts of lilac sprays
Midsummer rendezvous
In wintery decay

What went wrong?
No harmony in our song

Two souls spinning in
The spider web of fate
Sleepless dreaming
Just drifting away
We came into the circle
Full of youth & zeal
Now scattered like seeds
In long-fallow fields

We live for hope
Yet cruel fate has spoke

In poetic desperation
We arrive at this place
Where did the magic hide
Has it drifted away?
Since the chapter hasn’t closed
There must be more to say
Sadly, the words keep
Drifting away
