I dreamed we had not parted.
That we had spent the years nestled in each others hearts.
"Stay" you told me way back then.
But I was not persuaded
And so we spent that period of time apart
if there are degrees of separation
then we have closed the space in ours
though after decades even, my vision of you did not fade
and now we tread the same floors
we sleep beneath the same ceilings
and pay tribute to the youths that we once were
now we occupy the same space
we dream the same dreams
Now our visions nestle in the autumn of our lives
now there are no years between us save the ones that bring us forward
and there is no space between us now
now our hearts
