The Secret Song

Oblivion impressed upon me
For lo these many years
To be forever forgotten
My most primal and private fear

I fell for her at 16
The long joy of first love
The breakup came at 18
A thought I couldn't quite conceive of
She got closure and moved on
As the Americans do say
I kept searching in the mailbox
For letters that never came my way
Intimacy then the Void
Does strange things to the mind
Makes you seek and seek and seek
Yea though you seek, you shall not find
But sometimes in the silence
Her face in moonlight at the beach
Though still she lives inside me
She remains forever out of reach

Together for a moment
When beautiful and young
Then separated again forever
As the secret song is sung.
