In Memory of Dryden Jones
By Gudrun Jones
When we were young
We thought that we could change the world.
Our Dreams flew high
And every song invited us to dance
Love was in every glance.
But now we know
Tomorrow is just a breath away,
The world did not change
And we are no longer young.
How quickly time did fly,
Gave us so many reasons to cry,
So many things were left undone
So many songs left unsung.
Then for one moment I looked away
Did not know that you could not stay
Our hands are no longer entwined
You left before you could say good bye,
Left me in a world I no longer like.
In everything I see I search for you
At night I look for a star that is new,
Thinking it might be you.
Memories I treasure like a shiny pearl
As I think of you in that other world.
At night I can’t wait to fall asleep
So I can find you in my dream.
And there again are ‘We’
But when I awaken – it is only me.
