Melody – Written Thursday 19th May 2022 (Aged 47)

Melody

you have children now
your hair is grey and quite long
you used to be the melody
to my more youthful song
you used to the hug –
that i always sought
but time has moved us on
and in its process we are always caught
you have children now
your hair is grey and quite long
i have no children yet
and my hair is almost gone
you used to be my favourite crush
and the bus journey i always wanted
the one for which i would always rush
you used to be hug –
the person i longed to hold
the comfortable rug –
that one day gets sold
you have children now –
your hair is grey and quite long
you used to be my melody
the one to my favourite song
how we all talk about the past –
as life pushes us along
