The Time Traveler's Farewell

Posted by
Buck Rivera (Kassel, Germany) on 2 October 2015 in People & Portrait.

When first I met you years ago
In another time and place
The thought came to my mind
I'd never seen a kinder face
Or warmer laugh or gentler smile
Or eyes so full of light
I'd be a fool if I didn't fall
In love with you that night

We've tramped around the world, my dear
Our fortune was to roam
But each place I've been with you
That place has been my home
If now I wander on alone
With no place to abide
I'll be content for I was sent
Those wanderings at your side

Love that blossoms in the night
Can't stand the test of time
It ebbs and flows and comes and goes
No reason, reach nor rhyme
As each day becomes another day
Each year another year
I'd trade a year in heaven
For a day with you, my dear

The miles flow on and I am gone
To a wild and empty land
Where time is like an empty room
And space an empty hand
And the things we said and the jokes we made
Are echoes in the waste
We'll meet again where hills are green
In another time and place
