Suddenly years have gone by.
Clear is the water flowing down mountains,
As it was back then,
Grass that was cut has grown again,
To reclaim its shape, again,
But you, amid this scene, have changed
You were unmarried when I left,
We flirted, we could have been,
But now several children surround you,
Asking me, Who I am.

  1. Thank you! I think I like this one because you use simple language to describe complex emotions. Makes me think of somebody’s comparison of Verdi and Puccini: Verdi wrote complicated plots and simple music; Puccini wrote simple plots set to complex music. I know which one I prefer.
