In those days before, with younger eyes,
when the ways before were so many
but seemed so often not so,
she reached to me and offered her hand
and we walked then for a time together;
two souls feeling found,
two hearts much aglow.
Friends then, when friends we did need,
living in the endless moments of fleeting days,
the way lit more brightly than before,
and she gave to me from a heart so full
of love only, that sought its wings
and now ever a part of this heart she found...
which, from her heart, was made much more.
