Parallel Universe

On this bench I sat
once before watching you,
with the autumn wind in your hair,
summer sun in your lopsided smile,
winter sparkle in your eyes
and the earth shifted
as I was swept into your orbit

Now I sit here
once again
watching out for you,
with the autumn chill in my cheeks,
nursing my summer scorched heart,
icy winter freezing my hopes

I watch, as the world
spins past
A parallel universe
beyond my reach
