Can’t we be the way we used to be?

Another one of my free form poems about a love now lost.

 

Can’t we be the way we used to be?

Can’t we go back to when?

Has time destroyed a place called there

Now just memories of then?

 

Can’t we be the way we used to be?

It seems like only yesterday

Our love was here to last

Or that’s what we used to say.

 

Can’t we be the way we used to be?

I fear your love is gone

Leaving just a void in life

I can’t even hear our song.

 

Can’t we be the way we used to be?

Is it now gone forever?

Can it be brought back for us?

Or is the answer never?

 

I miss what use to be.

    It is so sad. — but nostalgia isn’t what it used to be.
