on this one sheet
of paper
each of the places you have been before
restored to order in your memory
making up the new way of seeing in
and then you know where to
truly begin
listening to one
album that explains the loss
and the times you weren’t there at all
not able to correct the words
and far from giving up the day
marking off the hours until
you know you will move away
and this can’t be the only time that
the change came down whether you like it or not
this is the beginning of your only years of
making up for the passion
that left your life and
you thought it was never coming back
but like the storm that arrived that night
only so many people can say
that they were ever loved this way…
