even time can’t stitch together

memories wrapped up
and tied with a bow
so carefully stored away
where they’ll never show

hidden from new loves
and people we might meet
so they don’t discomfort
those we might chance to greet

we can’t really give
ourselves as a whole
when ghosts are tucked away
so deep in our soul

so, perchance to find one
who can fill a such a space
without feeling the agony
of occupying some second place

we once gave all that we had
for a love we never imagined we’d lose
and we’ll do it again
if it’s you that we choose
