Oh, the times we could have had,

We two together,

Alliance formed in trust

And joint respect,

If not for distance, time

And all the half-truths,

We could have had

Such moments, I expect.


Drinking wine and chatting

Through the small hours,

Watching dawn arise,

New ways to see,

But, challenges unchallenged,

Past the midnights,

Forbade a different path,

So let it be


Alliance there was not,

So goes old story,

Telling in the absence

Of you near,

Mutual trepidation,

Arms at distance,

Let not connection be

A one of fear.
