No Going Back

As much as we would like

Even if we wanted to

There is no going back to what the world was once before the chaos of this illness.

No going back to ordinarily giving someone a hug

Or a high five

Or a hand shake

Or simply standing or sitting next to someone

Distance is and will be the new norm.

There is no going back to what the world once was.

Look Back

Let me look back and tell you of my fond memories

My memories of my childhood

When things were simple and fun despite most of it not going all too well.

Let me tell you of how the old days were

Of how there were more trees than skyscrapers

Of how fresher the air was.

I look back having remembered some of the things that happened during the war

How we hid

How we heard the bombings while huddled and hidden.

I remember my teenage years

The dances, the friends and even some of the funny stories

I remember my teachers and look back being thankful for them.

I look back hoping you’d share my excitement too

One day, you too will be looking back on your life

And I hope you remember me when you do.

Terribly

I will miss you terribly

Like the sun misses the sky at night

Like the stars misses the moon each time it becomes new

Like the flowers miss the rain

.

I will miss you terribly

As you go along a new journey

I pray all the best for you

And I pray you will find your way back to me, like you always do

Step Back

Sometimes I wonder what it would be like

To just live a carefree life

I wonder if I would ever have

The chance to have that

When everything and everyone seem to go so fast

I take a step back and breathe

And I take a moment to just breathe

Full Circle

The road takes me back to where I once was

But I notice slight changes

Things that used to be there, gone

Things that weren’t, appear

And as I walked further I got nearer

To where I once was

But now, I am different

And The Rain Is Back

It comes and it goes as it pleases

Kind of how you treat me.

The rain pours and then ceases

Like you, that disappears suddenly.

It floods the land and pours like no tommorow

And then suddenly all at once gone.

It’s kind of like you, pouring love and then sorrow

As of never ending but suddenly all done.

I try to look forward to the sun

But before I know it, the rain is back again

Over And Over 

I’m back at the start

Going over again

Starting all over again

But that’s what it is when you’re learning

When you continue to learn

You go back to the start

Start all over and relearn

The Long Way Back

I took the long way back
Just because
The long way had a wonderful view
A sight to die for
I can’t express the beauty that I saw
Nor will I ever be able to describe it
All I know is that I enjoyed the journey
Even with some pitfalls

The road was not easy
It was next to impossible for some
Still I knew it was worth it
So I pushed on

I scraped a knee
I lost my footing
But onwards I went
The path was difficult
But it was all worth it
To see the beauty that was beyond compare
Taking the long way back was a good decision
