Separation of Time

  Why must it be this way
for you and for I-
Yet no matter how far we wander
Our eyes will always avert up to the same evening sky

Why must it be this way
I ask myself each day-
Yet as unfortunate at it is
our wishes will eternally land upon the same stars
for we are still just kids
forming our own memoirs

So this way it will remain
for the next while there is
But we may ease the pain
By thinking of it as this-

My heart is with you
and yours with mine,
The only curse against us
is this separation of time

So we must overcome 
and compel the strength to be fine
For this is only how it will remain

For the remainder of time.
