Time comes and goes as night falls.
Memories live and thrive throughout your mind.
Departed souls no longer speak, nor listen,
Yet recall within your mind, and you will surely find
Moments shared, past and forgotten
Etched in the mind as ice caresses its form.
Yet no thoughts allowed of past correlations,
Ignored and forgotten, a friendship mourned.
Memories fade, yet thrive inside,
Hidden away in a place as dark as night;
Nowhere seen, secured in obscurities,
They remain untouched.
Friends? Once upon a time the best of;
Cherished, only now to be forgotten.
Distant, never to speak again,
Yet through memories, each one lives.
Time passes, the seasons change,
Years fade as ships sail the lonely seas.
Time lost to years forgotten,
Friendships torn through mistaken realities.
Can one regain that which was lost,
Can communication rekindle with the broken heart,
Can time reclaim the memories once shared,
Or does the silence shroud the severed heart?
Time will heal or destroy the many,
Yet time is what brings the best.
A friendship strong as the glacier peaks,
Yet fragile as ice shattering to the earth beneath.
Will time heal the broken hearted,
Or are wills so strong none will forgive?
These answers I seek, yet do not know,
I cannot see inside one’s soul.
Has time healed that which was broken,
Or is a friendship lost with the unspoken?
