Back Then - Poem by Gaylord Munemo

And it came along that everything changed,
Yet before then, wishes were countless,
To read the lines on your lips,
Count the pores on your skin,
Follow the paths of your fingerprints,
Wishing on a star

And it came along that everything changed,
But before then, the hopes were countless,
Telling you a poem as listen,
Watching you fall asleep,
Counting the number of breaths you take
Hoping on the moon

And it came along that all changed,
Yet before then, my imaginations were deep,
To see your eyes shining with joy,
To tell you how wonderful you are,
To shed a tear with you
Wishing on a star

And along came broken wishes,
Yet back then, my visions were intense
To give you everything but to take nothing at all,
To show you care but expecting nothing in return,
To count the stars with you,
To be the boy who tries to be a man,
To make you smile in every way,
To remind you I am always there,
Such was the scripture with history,
Back when, before then
