Monday Poem: Found and Lost Again


Found and Lost Again

And then the motion takes us further on
To places found and lost again, as time
Is turning on, far past those times long gone
We lost or left behind, almost a crime
The way the past is lost to us, beyond
The reach of fingers stretching out so far
Towards a place, like that remembered pond
We swam together, naked. In the car
We drove away from those much younger days
Arriving here too many years too late
To turn around, go back to those old ways
To find a time and path beyond this gate.
To take us back to younger easy years
Before we felt the weight of all these tears.
