Four Years Hence

by Quinn Vokes

It's getting to be that time again.
Fall is here, winter is hinting again in Michigan, but not overtaking.

And I'm left thinking about her again.

There was a girl that I once lost,
It was of my own doing.
If only I had been strong enough,
If only I had listened to God and not man.

There was a girl that I once lost,
Four years hence has passed,
I miss her shining and smiling face,
I miss her laughter in the night.

There was girl that I once lost,
Guilt is washing through me,
I miss you, my dear, dear friend,
and I wish you would come back to me.

Relationships may be irreparably damaged but rarely if there is great desire and effort to get them on track again. Maybe a different track but a more stable one. Young love has its challenges as you've so poignantly described.

I always say, if the guilt is useful, then by all means. But when it becomes just a tool for self defamation, better to let loose of it. I can feel your ache in this.
