My Long Ago


My Long Ago

The more I wait, the more I know

That you were my past, my long ago.

I pray to greet you once more in this life

This moment, not missed, nor lost from my sight.

Don’t let me be in a shadow somewhere

You may not find me, that I could not bear.

Come forward; come near when you feel me again

My heart has held your place, throughout life, asking when.

I would fall from all I own in open embrace

If only, one day, I could see your dear face.
