Barry Van Allen
A Long, Long, time!
Hidden in the shadows of her mind,
there are some reasons that the lady cannot find,
I could not see them as they were,
I didn't see enough, or read the signs,
Her true past is only seen by her,
... as I alone see mine.
... I love her still and guess I will,
for quite a long, long time.
There was a space, a special place,
where she and I would go,
in our hearts were shipwrecked parts,
of the journeys we have known.
Some say that it was meant to be,
that ships would run aground,
that love would end up lost at sea,
with partial dreams not found.
I wish we could have found the way,
and made a different yesterday,
I sometimes wish she'd come and talk,
I wish that she would walk with me,
... and show me things that I won't see,
out in the rainy sunshine...
I love her and I guess I will,
for quite a long, long, time!
