The clock has stopped
Time stands still momentarily
I pause to reflect
I look for you
But you are not there
You are never there
Just a shadow of a memory
In the darkness of time.
You were so sweet
I would have waited forever
But how could I, without one word
One kind gesture, anything from you?
I lost all hope in your absence
In the lonely space of time.
At what moment in time did you stop caring?
You did not say, I was not aware
It was as if you left the room for a moment
and never returned
There I waited in the sad emptiness
of the void you left behind
Wondering, questioning ...
Every flower needs sustenance
or it will fade and die
You left me, wanting, needing
You once were so kind.
Now time moves on once more
And you leave me in that lonely space
That place which is your past.
I have become a forgotten rose,
A vague memory, a shadow.
Just someone you used to know ...
