I used to know before you told me
What you’d say.
Then I felt so much like you did
But the years have brought their changes
Made us little more than strangers
And I don’t know any longer
Who you are.
Somehow we lost connection ….
You followed a different star.
In Dylan’s heartfelt lyric
Was our jointly offered prayer –
‘May you stay forever young’.
Now you speak a different tongue.
Yes, there are songs we left unsung
But what we had was real and rare ….
And from our hearts come still that prayer …..
‘O may you stay……….forever young’.
