An abyss appeared and consumed us with our silence,
Once the young, carefree us disappeared,
A time when words were not needed.
Then, words were all we had left and we could not find them,
We were lost and there was no way back,
Now, I am old and lonely and sad with, just memories,
I have words now, but you cannot hear them.
I wonder how your life fared, happiness? contentment?
Photo's old and battered, smiles, laughter, just memories,
Always in my head, always in my heart.
