Jigsaw Memory

You left something behind
The others are in a box in the corner
Nothing I can say, no one to blame
Where should I start, what will I find
No cemetery, I’m not a mourner
Familiar pieces, but none the same

It could be the lock on the door
Lines on the face, eyes of a different color
My mind is full, but not arranged well
They’re next to me, all over the floor
A jigsaw, what is that I will rediscover
Nobody but my heart can tell

As it takes shape, I can see the past
Her smooth cheek, a glassy lake
Blue and green eyes, brown too
Sunset sky streaks, not so long to last
Is love living again, is it for me to make
Now I know, a jagged life, it wasn't only you
