Somewhere in Time

I'm a writer, a poet, a dreamer. Born and raised in New York City. I now live in Daytona Beach, Florida. .


Somewhere in time,

you my dearest friend and I,

thought that we could share –

a love so true and rare.

For you and me,

friendship has taken us,

through many years

and always we have cared.

What more we might be searching for,

might change what we are –

to one another my dear.

Somewhere in time,

we thought we felt,

the smoldering embers,

of love drawing us close.

But as time goes on,

hand in hand you and I,

kisses really have no passion –

we’re searching for a lost dream.

Always together,

through thick and thin.

Together like friends,

never you without me.

Nothing should change what is,

for you and I –

have the strong bonds of a friendship so rare.

So let us be what we are,

not look for something more,

take my hand,

let us continue on our way,

be there for each other –

always like old friends do.

So that we don’t lose what we already have,

put away the dreams of love,

the love we share as friends is enough,

otherwise we could lose what is so dear –

somewhere in time.

Thank you Peg. Many of Elton's songs inspire me.

Somewhere in time...So important for people in love to understand that friendship is the lasting part of the relationship. You've captured that so well here in your poetry. Listening to "Friends" now.

I like how this captures the complexity of some relationships. Nicely expressed.

True friendship is difficult to find these days. I love the Elton John video, I love his music.

A wonderful, loving friendship, the type of which we all should be so lucky to have. Beautiful work, Rasma!
