once upon a time

Looking at the photo of you and me dancing together ten years ago.  
The oneness of you, holding you close made me complete.
The night you came to call all I did was laugh at you.
Now looking down all the lost years, I know you
understand why I say the joke's on me.

Serious tears wasted today, when I should have
spent all the years laughing with you, not at you., stupid youth perniciously aloof.
Would that I could, take back the short time I laughed with you.
Too late, you passed away, that’s why I say the joke's on me.
Now I kiss your memory and ruefully reflect on all the time wasted..

You were an angel then and I know today you’re an
angel in heaven, holding me in your arms.
How did I miss the beauty in your mind?
Looking up at the photo of you dancing with me forever in time - the joke's on me.
I shall love forever the simplicity of you being you.
Where do I go from here?  I know there shall never be another you.
I’ll accept you’re soaring aloft laughing,
waiting for me at heavens gate..xxxxxxxxxx
