anniversary

We have been together for longer than we haven’t.

Do you remember that day, that beer in the village,

that evening, that night?

Do you remember? I do.

And yes, life has changed,

life has definitely changed us,

life has of course green splintered and mended,

yes to all of those things, yes of course.

But still when I see you,

my eyes open or closed tight,

still when I see you I remember that evening,

the evening when the shadows were gone.
