Not Long Ago

Not long ago,
you were gone.

Not long ago,
we were there.

Goodbye from you.
The past occurred.

What time reminds us?
Why pain breaks us?

It was not a chance.
We didn’t make it.

Not long ago,
we laughed.

Not long ago,
we loved.

What is left for us?
How do we forget all these?

Not long ago,
we started.

Not long ago,
we ended.
