Because I can no longer kiss you

no longer feel your skin

beneath my fingers

or hear you in the night

Because I can no longer call you

no longer sound your name

beneath my breath

or hear you whisper soft

Because I could not stop time passing

could not return time's sand

beneath its glass

or heal the wounds of time

Because I could not hold you here

could yet your love return

beneath my loss

or forget we shared so much

 

Because you are not here

 

Now the years have passed

 

Because you can no longer kiss me

my skin no longer trembles

beneath your fingers

or waits you in the night

Because you can no longer call me

no longer sound my name

beneath my dream

or with that murmur sway me

Because you could not stop my going

could not retain my hand

beneath your ring

or heal the wounds of love

Because you could not hold me yet

could not make my love return

beneath your dark compulsion

nor sink beneath that old passion shared

 

So I am not there

 

Now the years have passed
