Day 118 - One Life Ago

One Life Ago

That cozy little place you see just there?
One life ago it was filled with love and care,
But now it is empty and hollow
Always waiting for a better tomorrow.

I entered that house in my dreams.
One life ago, envisioning the golden sun's beams
But soon it was shuttered up, harsh and cold
And such visions seem now, creaking and old.

One life ago it was your favorite place
It lit the shadows upon your fair face.
One life ago, we would stand together
That seems to be happening now, never.

One life ago that is all I ask for now
If only we could travel back then, but how?
One life ago is one much too far
Best to stay where it is that we are.
