I close my eyes and dream again,
Of a distant time, way back when,
My doubts were quiet, my heart sure,
That our love was lasting, true and pure.
Then opening my eyes, I see your face,
And my illusions vanish without a trace,
For the eyes that once shone for me,
Now stare off in the darkness, sullenly.
“Where did I fail, what went wrong?”
I ask in a voice that once was strong,
You just frown and turn away,
“Nothing … nothing ” is all you say.Don Grier 2020
