Gray and blurs
Shades that turn
Freckles and wrinkles
Aging is undeniable
Our years are unfathomable

Lonesomeness to togetherness
Let my selfishness so regress
Our hands shall meet
Pact is sweet
Our hearts are unwilling to show retreat

Grow weary and old
Eclipsing eyes yet bold
Letting scars turn into gold
Even ‘til memories can’t be recalled
Us together, was it foretold?

Can’t find words to say
I can only the find words to write
And I wrote a song for you
A song I can’t find a melody to

And this heart only knows a beat
Syncopated in vast nervousness
Funny how my folly retreats
And my pride sings in all my shyness

Blanked out silent as I lay
I barely could whisper your name
It is what my lips can only say
Crazy speechless in disarray
