Now and Then

Stone guards the part of my heart that holds

my memories of you.
I can't look
for fear of breaking.

Life is anew now.
Sweet and tender.
Still I guard the walls
that contain you.

The pain of your touch
and the scars you caused
can never be healed.

I move forward
ever watchful over my shoulder
Will you appear today?

Forever hoping my new heart won't break
the pieces stay together.
Such is the sweet tender joy
of my new life.

Please dear walls
Please don't break.
Don't steal my life away.
