Where Did It All Go?
I saw it on the day
We set together on the same
Bench, left alone unattended,
Not disturbed; just ignored as
If we were not present in their mist.
We had it on our side: by just
A short period of trial - it was
In us. We bonded together
And it kept us together for
About one summer and one winter.
You thought it had died after
That: But you know where it
Was to be going. You opened
The gate and I set it free.
It went and fade into the light.
Oh soul: It started by I
And it went on till it was
We, who had it all; than it
Ended by you wandering
Where did it all go.
