Ask me no more beneath this starless sky
of what ifs or what could have been
had we taken a different path when we were young.
Ask me no more of absolution
for the transgressions we both are guilty of.
I cannot give you that of which I do not have.
Ask me no more of taking chances
for the dreams we dared to imagine but didn’t realize.
My faith has long been tested and failed.
Ask me no more of forever,
for however much love we have to give;
we are just as powerless under the hands of time.
