To heal a broken heart
and those scorned parts that were torn,
when two lovers fell apart
and a new love was reborn.
It was what you left behind,
that brings me back from time to time.
I guess that’s why when I close my eyes
everything felt just fine...
to hit rewind,
until I press play
to the moment where our love didn’t run astray.
We were at that park where the grass is soft and green,
and the day was warm and gay.
And they sky was wispy blue
as the breeze made me feel so serene.
As it blew softly through the trees
and the leaves
Everything felt so cool.
I could rest my head on your soft chest
if I didn’t act like a fool.
l did what’s best
because I wanted to entertain.
That smile of yours I needed to sustain.
As we lied on the blanket your great grandmother had made,
with our backs against an oak tree until the sun decided to fade.
As you nuzzled my chin and rubbed your fingers against my warm lips.
As your breath smelled of peach nectar
and I couldn’t help but take a sip.
And just lean in for a kiss
as your scent is what I miss.
Maybe why I play rewind
from time to time
and sometimes have fits
on how things were fine.

dropped on a dime.
When you left the park in a hurry
as the leaves swept in a flurry,
I was afraid you saw something furry
but you only saw it was getting late,
and time was changing the date.
Why you went with the leaves
and blew away.
To blow away in the past,
as the moment happened so fast.
And the one gaze didn’t last....
Since you ran into the street
and I couldn’t even think
when that car ended our days.
But kept mine.
Mine decided to stay...
why I play
the pain away.
