It feels like centuries
inside months, weeks, days
solid hours and minuscule minutes
since I've seen her last
Nala, my best friend
I can't believe she found me here
away from her world
a world we used to share
when we were reckless, fun loving cubs
To see her here now
my feet are turning to sand
my tongue dry as salt
tongue tied and terrified
Can she see in my eyes how much I missed her
on this walk towards this misty waterfall
I have so many things to tell her
well I wish to, I need to
but how to make her see
Should I tell her the truth about my past
(sigh) impossible...
She'd turn and run away from me
And like a book
she's reading me with her eyes
wondering what I'm hiding
Something stupid, I crave something stupid
to ease my thoughts, to calm my nerves
I could always jump in the water
and take her down with me
teach her how to swim
but water's her worst enemy
yet I'd give anything to see her smile
Laying on the grass
staring in her pools of crystals
So young, how could I have missed this before
The sight of her is breathtaking
I've never felt this way
but I'm conflicted
I think it's safe to say I'm in love
but this is troubling
my past has crept back upon me
I should tell her, I need to tell her
but I'm out of words, out of time
my homemade hammock can't hold me up for long

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
