On Splitting Up


On Splitting Up

It seems I've lived my life
looking backward
hoping to make a feeling last.

I used to sit in bars
and write poems for the barmaids.
They would keep me in beer
if I wrote to their liking.
(Maybe wine, if my lines were extra good.)

But I was just killing time,
'cause I didn't care anymore.
At least, not for myself...
alone.

I've been years now
moving from one place to another
with only my dreams to keep you alive.
I went halfway around the world
four different times.
You traveled with me----
within my mind.

If I could find you again
after all these many years,
I'd want to take hold of your hands
and tell you something
that wasn't mentioned before.
I'd tell you, "I love you;"
even if you don't remember me
anymore.
