After The Gift Is Given - Poem by Rick Elpers

And with an air of sadness
I retreat back into 
The shallows where separation 
Took place, leaving me
No position of recurrence 
To our past evolved into the future
As we would have grown
Together in bonded hearts
Persevering all that comes to us
Now that I stand alone
Watching but no longer hoping
To a life bound to the one
 whom I thought loved me
I shall waver in and out of ideas
That used to carry my soul
Until that day where you 
Are nothing more than 
Someone I used to know.
