The Past Is Gone

We used to eat together

At the dining room table

Talk about our day

And what we learned in school

We used to share music

Let it play all day long

The artists and songs

That were our favorites

We used to treasure

Spending time together

Then life swept us up

And distance became miles

We used to be too busy

Work and kids activities

There were never enough hours

Just wasted moments that never were

We used to talk on the phone

Share a few brief moments

Talking of our treasured accomplishments

And disappointing losses

… then without a warning

They were gone for good

And I was left thinking

We used to eat together
