I stopped searching for you
I stopped searching for you.
I looked for you in other places, other faces, but never found you.
At 17, I knew where to go find you, but my fears kept me away from my destiny that I knew was with you.
Time has passed for us both and now we have other lives that are totally separate and apart in many ways, but I still yearn for you.
I sometimes see you in my dreams, but we never consummate our love, and our yearnings for each other.
Is it too late to still look for you, if only in my dreams?
In another life, another time, we will find each other again.
We will look at the sunset of our years with joy and wonder knowing that we are together again.
