I imagined a lifetime
A lifetime to hold you
A lifetime of memories

I imagined there would be time
Time to watch you grow
Time to love you

I foresaw a future
A future of laughs and smiles
A future of happy memories

Although you were so small
And the world was yet to know you
I looked forward and saw it all

I saw you
I saw how much I already loved you
I saw how my life would never be the same without you

Now you are gone
Before my dreams materialised
And my life really isn’t the same¬†with you gone.

~ Sherrie Dyer


I had you once
how sweet the memory
with youthful hopes
and a childlike itinerary

I lost you once
with aching regret
a wounding mistake
that fate won’t forget

I had you twice
your kisses were passion
your hands were fire
your eyes desire-fashioned

I lost you twice
being the fool of confusion
your memory is fresh
my doubts a delusion

I’ll have you thrice
our paths will cross
our destinies are one
and time will have lost

But lose you thrice
how stark the refusal!
our lives are intertwined
and my love unillusional

~ Sherrie Dyer
