Swiftly failing memory


A swiftly failing memory
No prose and no poems
When world is tender be
When life’s full of roses
Then the wind change and it’s all gone
All alone like a black swan
Then the wind change
Then the wind change
Got to be tough sine qua non

A swiftly failing memory
With all the promises
In each other’s eyes lovingly
Thought it was so joyous
With you and me against the world
With no secrets that flap unfurled
With you and me
With you and me
Then it wasn’t the real world

A swiftly failing memory
Sunrise and moonlight
Like jewels in the treasury
I thought you were my knight
Not meant to be, that we know now
Lesson learned and move on somewhow
Not meant to be
Not meant to be
But with no regrets anyhow*
