Still The Same

Still The Same

A Poem by Draven


I'd forgotten how the mornings sounded
When I'd text you good morning by sunrise
As your eyes opened the first time in the day.

I'd lost all memory of summer's dream,
Or your face held in my hands, or the way
I watched the stars spell out your name.

If only there wasn't pain,
If only we'd been older
And mistakes we made as children
Were nothing more than games,
Things would be the same.

Time has passed so quickly and here we are again.
I wrap you in my arms, just like I did back then.
I feel it all come back, it's still the same.

Your puzzle piece is back to me
Like reconnected memories and things long lost
Now find their way back home.

If only there'd been no pain,
If only we'd been older
And mistakes we made as children
Were nothing more than games,
Things would be the same.

I never thought it still would be the same.
