Gazebo (first draft) 9/2/14

This is a first draft, no edits.  Typed directly into my iPhone as the words shot through my brain within 5 minutes and was gone...

Gazebo   9/2/14

And if we were a couple
A couple of what I don't know
We could sit in the gazebo
And imagine sgt pepper
Teaching the band to play.

But that was more than 20 years ago
And god knows where all that time did go
But we lost it forever and can
Never get it back.

And the moon is proudly shining
Over the water on the harbor
And I'm sitting in the gazebo
Waiting for my song to play.

And I don't know if I believe
In love or fate or destiny
Or if everything is entropy
Just spinning out towards the sun.

I just know I can't sit here forever
Forgetting about my passions
Silently waiting for my life
To just someday reappear 
on the event horizon 
Like this imaginary band

In the gazebo of the mind.
