Another Time, Another Life - Poem by Daniel Wittfoth

Sound of footsteps
sound of doorknob turning
A peaceful night broken by teardrops
falling in the glow of moonlight

Sound like I never heard before
too strong these emotions
Bet top dollar that this levy
'round this ol' heart won't hold
Can feel the foundation start to give way
crumble down before these tired eyes

But that's another time
that's another place
Candlelight-dreams of the future
promises made without any hesitation
That skin tight summer dress you wore
yellow rose tucked behind your right ear
Smile on your face
gentle whisper on the winds
this really feels like forever

That was another time
that was another life
Another moment in a long line
I foolishly let slip away
another time, another life

Note left on the table
too many reasons to give up the fight
Not enough to keep it alive
everything fades-eventually

But that's another time
that's another place
Candlelight-dreams of the future
promises made without any hesitation
That skin tight summer dress you wore
yellow rose tucked behind your right ear
Smile on your face
gentle whisper on the winds
this really feels like forever

That was another time
that was another life
Another moment in a long line
I foolishly let slip away
another time, another life.....
