My Long Ago
The more I wait, the more I know
That you were my past, my long ago.
I pray to greet you once more in this life
This moment, not missed, nor lost from my sight.
Don’t let me be in a shadow somewhere
You may not find me, that I could not bear.
Come forward; come near when you feel me again
My heart has held your place, throughout life, asking when.
I would fall from all I own in open embrace
If only, one day, I could see your dear face.
