"As if not denied but only delayed"



I found love but lost it along the way
Gone the wrong way because I was afraid
And in the ambiguity between
In incongruent continuity
A sense of suspense in a ready state

Somehow alone now I wonder someday
As time keeps returning a steady rate
Of return when the time to turn has come
About love if hypothetically
And if it should be that I could find some
As if not denied but only delayed
And as if someone could know what I mean

As if not too late for a turn of fate
To lose love but find it along the way
The long way when always is in between
Tomorrow and yesterday only when
Today is the only now and again

Fate turned away once and left me for dead
After the universe turned for the worse
To turn out for the better anyway
As if it had to turn worse than it was
Turning around and returning instead
As if from behind to come out ahead
And turn out for the best then when it does

+Steven Curtis Lance
