30 years

30 years is a lifetime,
a time of years
swimming, singing
laughing, oh yes I have
laughed, have you?
What a silly question
of course you have
watching me
being silly.
I don't know
if I have missed you, always
sometimes ~ but is it just
Ok, yes I have
I am a curmudgeonly person,
I have missed you
I've missed our young skin
and staying up all night,
I've missed not going to
the club and jamming
and missing notes
and leaving rings
on a piano top and
I have missed it all.
So I just wanted to say
I have missed it
the fun, being young
being silly, having sex
falling in a laundry basket,
wearing a stupid basque
that cut and you laughed
and I damn well did too.
30 years, fuck, where did
it go?

Truly touching in its frank realism. Time passes so fast, and all those wonderful moments become memories so fast. Absolutely love this!

just beautiful, touched me all the way to the last letter.

Diamonds shining on a speck of sand. One shines on a shine never gone.
