Years ago, we held a distinct bond, Once that could not last. Though I had grown so Fond Of our time together, I knew how fast It would burn away.
After a decade together, I made a vow, That we would go our separate ways, And would sow, Our own lives apart.
That was the start Of a realization of what We left behind.
Now, here we are, ready to salvage The unearthed materials we found with age, Understanding the lessons life taught us To utilize a different kind of trust.
We will salvage what we had, Not forgetting the past. Our hands Will build a stronger future Now that we know the cure.
