The Thorns of Time

The Thorns of Time by Maria Fokas

First you left;
And then, I waited.
             – I watched the days go by in silence
Without a sign of love; I waited –

I felt the thorns of time.
             – I wept for the miracles
Those we left behind –

Damn those walls we swore to break.
             – And all I ever wished for
To find the truth, in all those loves that slip away –

Stripped of dignity, by the things I know.
             – My heart must turn against the tide
The thorns of time bestow no hope upon me –

Yet, I am grateful for all the things you gave me.
             – For the moon, for the stars; for the rest of time
And for the song, you cried, before you said goodbye –

First, you left;
             -Then, I let my heart forget.
That was the order, of our infinite day –
