It Happened

The isthmus of my mind
Trailing off to nowhere real
Thoughts of yesterday
The gone, gone look 
Of everyone else
It was a simple time
But nothing effective
Except when the pain settled in
I’d been bereft
But found that with you
There was a way
I trailed off somewhere
But came back
I never realized
Yes I did
I knew it all along
Those simple answers
Were perfectly suited to
Your complicated questions
And I drove myself to think
How easy it all was
Now I’m positively bursting
With all that happened then
I was so young
And old
All at once
But my mind had no age
It just had now
And then
And everything in between
So long ago was right now
Just like that
