Get here if you can

There is a table

Waiting for us

The one we used to have

All alone

Nobody else

We sat for hours

And days and days

That slipped on by

And time traveled

So fast

I missed you

Even while you were there

In front of me

I missed the time

In the future

When you moved on

And we could never

See each other again

The place is still


The table remains

Workers too

From long ago

The ocean waves

Still crash the shore

The same moon shines

The stars align

But not for us

After our moment

Slipped away


I do

I don’t forget

How we were going

To do great things

And stay up late

We were not

Going to let

Any thing

Or any one

Stop us, because

We knew best

The table is still there

It waits for us

When if, no

We can’t be two

Just one

At a time

If we must go back

Say the words

I want to hear


Say them

Like you used to

I don’t mind

What they mean

Just to hear

Your voice

One more time

The words

Still echo

In my mind

Au revoir mon amour
