Would time allow

Again, we are in this crowd
but everyone looks different
and when I look to you
your eyes accuse me (the moon
above does not point fingers)

I resist being pulled into your circle
(how I robbed her of you) oh
the euphoria in our time together
oh, the regret when I consider my debt
and my selfish taking

Not paying attention, til suddenly
you were gone (and so was the time)
relegated to memory and storytelling
our faces changed and softened
my eyes wistful as I remember

That year you wanted me
(more than anyone else alive)
and I had all of you in my hand
until you were not
