There are moments from my life which I would love to live again. I would plot them on a map and visit them individually.
Rediscover the emotions behind the expressions on a now wrinkled face. But for now I’m stuck in this place.
Grey skies outside my window, clouds accumulating overhead. I’m stuck helpless in this bed.
There are smells I want to discover again. Roses in the garden, fresh-cut grass in the spring. All i can do now is lay here and twiddle this ring.
You left me six months ago, gone to pastures new. I will soon follow, if only you knew.
The lyrics of our song, filter through my mind, the melody as clear as mud.
Stop & Stare, from when we first met. The case that defined the rest of our lives.
You had chipped at my inner walls, light had crept through the gaps. The brickwork soon crumbled around my heart.
45 years later I’m still proud that you where my husband. The best years of my life, three kids to call my own.
I saw the swings one more time, Our eldest took me there, on one sunny day. We sat & cry for all that had come.
She promised to be brave as the end drew near, My sweet Alexis the one I hold most dear.
So now I close my eyes and all I see is you, I’ll be there soon Castle, Just you wait and see.
