the nostalgic paradox

Your laugh comes through the soft breeze
Your touch through the whistle of the trees
It’s you, because together we are one
The stars, the sand, and the sun

At rest is when we are at ease
Living presently in our memories,
It’s us, because together we are one
Afar, beyond, among

It’s this familiar feeling
Something so freeing, it’s healing
It’s me, because together we are one
In the ups, in the downs, in every stun

Revel in reliving what’s been seen
No longer concealed by glass ceilings
It’s we, because together we are one
Together this race we run

Can I go back to the moment we first met?
Life became the ultimate dream
It’s you and me, because together we are one
A knowing inside that will forever gleam
