ONLY TEARS

Copyright 2018 by Judy Unger

 

We were children; we grew up so fast

We were confused; our plans were so vast

With uncertain careers

I long to touch you, but I only feel tears

We were concerned; our future was scary

We were so close, soon I will marry

Childhood disappears . . .

I long to touch you, but I only feel tears

Oh, my friend, it won’t be long

Before our touch is a memory

One day when we’re older, we’ll know where we are

We’ll still feel our love, though our lives may be far

We were so crazy, I love you today

Will we stay close?

For you might move away

With the passage of years . . .

I long to touch you, but I only feel tears

Oh, my friend, it won’t be long

Before our touch is a memory

One day when we’re older, we’ll know where we are

We’ll still feel our love, though our lives may be far

Now I am older, our stories are clear

I feel you with me,

You may not be near

Our love perseveres

I long to touch you, but I only feel tears

My diary from 1980.
