Obelisks


Let me remember old trails
Let me weep over lost loves
They are all the same love
But different

Let me remember old trails
Cherry trees along muddy roads
And ancient obelisks
They are now so different
But still the same

Let me remember missteps
Let me regret wrong paths
They are all the same path
But different

The seasons always alter
Or they hardly ever change
Only the hours pass
Time stands still
And your love is mine

Let me remember old lanes
Let me weep over old loves
They are all different
But still the same

Let me remember good times
Life in its fleeting flight
Days of yore that vanished
They are still the same
But different

The seasons always alter
Or they hardly ever change
Only the hours pass
Time stands still
And my love is yours

Let me take new roads
Let me praise new loves
They are all the same love
But different
