Back and Forth by Vickie

Back and forth, sweet burning sun
Your taste forever on my tongue
Peace came free, a flood within
Different now, but found again.

Back and forth, a winter flame
Warm and safe, always the same
Quiet voice, all stories told
Some part of you for me to hold.

Back and forth, to keep this place
Once-treasured heart, now touched in haste
For love is past, yet each will own
The memory, yet dream alone.
