When I Was Young

When I Was Young

written by: Lisa Keeble



I thought I knew love

For at least a day

And then forgotten

Space for new heartbreak

Without compromise

Love me or leave me

Watch them walk away

No longer perfect

Time changed perspective

Acceptable sham

Love’s imitation

Sad desperation

All that I longed for

Lost in passing years

Until I found you

No more jaded heart

Pure, childish belief

That true love exists

Silent companion

Walks beside us all

Came then to claim you

For the dark, from life

I was lost, broken

But ever grateful

That you showed me love
