A Long Time Ago

I saw a sad man who had lost his love

he stood with a faraway gaze.

As lost as he looked, as sad as he was,

I was minded of long ago days.


Of a time before love

of a time full of pain

of the day that my big brother died.


I watched as the messenger carried the news

his face all ashen by the burden.

He bade me sit and imparted his news.

I cried, I cried, I CRIED!!


Time passes, pain eases, and life carries on

and you love and are loved in return.

But at night in the shadows inside of the dreams

the memories come back and they burn.
