Red, Blue and Yellow

Reach out and touch the memories
they blur when you get closer
I took a path much different
to what I envisioned then

Things will change, it’s inevitable
but have I become a different person?
When the weeks become months
when I realise all is gone

It can never come back
Even my dreams have betrayed me
The rouge of her dress
The cobalt of my eyes
The ochre of the sun
It can never come back

This new chapter of tomorrow
just a cracked, rear view mirror
Looking back on the road I have come from
I see the crossroads
and I wonder how I got here in the first place

Even the photographs of us
when we were all laughing
The ghosts of smiles upon our faces
belong to others but us

It can never come back
Even my dreams have betrayed me
The rouge of her dress
The cobalt of my eyes
The ochre of the sun
It can never come back

The End
