Neither chess nor checkers,
yet each of us play our part.
You knowing your time is dimming, and the wrong you have done.
Me giving my best effort, as if it may have been forgotten.
A slow dance in compassion and forgiveness, new steps for you to learn.
A work in progress, memories haunt, wounds remain to deep for heal.
Alike while worlds apart, I can not reverse your past.
Or champion your values, we are truly different men.
I carry the luggage you brought forth in anger.
Making sure it is destroyed, a burden no other should ever carry.
We struggle each session, alike while worlds apart.
Seeking a bridge in showing, feelings we should be knowing.
Alike while worlds apart, next world waiting.
Love is not in question, alike while worlds apart.
Only time remaining, and sorry to be said.
Sands grains reducing, we try to move ahead.
I know your time is dimming, I wash your wrongs away.
Alike while worlds apart, I hope for better days.
Each of us play our part, with little more to say.
Alike while worlds apart.
