Living in the present moment 

Healthy for the soul

Until the present kills purpose 

The future takes its toll.

Lost in the silence 

Then crippled by the noise

Blinded from possibilities 

And where there was choice.

Changes happening rapidly 

Even while standing still

Legs are locked place

Hope losing its will.

The ghost of me is haunting 

And has no right to live

My heart still beats inside 

More is lost to give.

Losing her was crippling 

Especially in mirror view

Chances buried by years

Now understanding she was you.
