Lost

by Tanya Southey   Jun 4, 2019


It’s not that you are lost
it’s that I am gone

The way you made me laugh
now floats somewhere
over the lonely ocean

It’s not that you are lost
it’s just that I no longer
see the moon
the way I used to
and the sun seems
dimmed as it hangs
above the bird song

It’s not that you are lost
it’s just that I am found
in another place and time
but you return
in the first three bars
of a favourite song

It’s not that you are lost

      Thanks so much Ben. I think that music is a universal thing that takes us back to wherever our hearts were at the time that the song was a hit.
