A Phoenix on the Greyhound
Blue moons and many coon's ages
Ending chapters and missing pages
Never thought I'd see you here
I yearn here where I will wait

I remember the time that we ran so far away
From weakened souls and foundations of clay
Who chastised us for not being a reflection
Of status quo and moving in the same direction
Do you remember?

Will I know what to say at all?
Will I answer when you call?
I pray you'll accept my changes
I kneel here, where I will wait

I remember the time we wasted at the shore
Where we hoped and aspired for something more
And spiraled eyes would be content with lies
With these words, our aspiration grew in size
Do you remember?

Dry tears and somber songs
Know not where the pain belongs
Surreptitiously, time takes me
From the past to where I wait

I remember the nights you held me in tears
Chasing away the demons of the past years
And I would hold you close and reassure you
"As long as I'm here, you'll make it through"
Do you remember?

Will we not even make a sound?
Will we nervously look around?
No matter how much I speculate
Time tells all, here I'll wait

I remember the hand that clutched so tight
To scenes from the movies or images fright
Yet matched in strength in times of caress
Scars deep to remind me of all your stress
Do you remember?

Your return holds no grandeur
A wave and a word so demure
Deep inside this longing grows
One you made where I now wait

I remember the day you had to run far away
Eighteen wheels of sorrow turn to this day
I still see the deadened gleam within your eye
A sight that could assure or bring forth a cry
Do you remember?

I expected nothing less here
As I turn away from my fear
And as I turn, I hear you say
"I love you, and I cannot wait"

I remember the day you attempted to tell me
The few words I wish I could have set free
Now that I hear it, time lost is ours alone
Just hold me now, there's no need to atone
I'll always remember.
