After a while will the sun come out to smile
Will clouds disappear and wipe away lies
Will fresh breezes quicken and open your eyes
Or will I exist on memories and good byes?
After a while will I long for you no more
Will my heart no longer linger at your door
Will there be new horizons or yearnings as before
Or will I lose the longing forevermore?
After a while does heartache really end
Or does it step aside forgetting it should mend?
I wish I knew the how’s and why’s we ceased to blend
Then perhaps I’d pretend this moment is just a whim.
Will ‘after-a-while’ time ever come for me?
I know the memory of love will ever be.
But perhaps fate’s kindness will soothe the pain
Enough to set me on life’s path again.
