permanent record

back before today was tomorrow
i wrote you a song
you said it was the best you ever heard

i haven’t been around
or maybe just not around you
but i still breathe some of the air we shared
some of the thoughts that pulled us together
still dot the inner landscape of my mind

when i see you in there i have to look around
as if that passing thought was you
somewhere near me

i thought life was impermanent
but i never expected impermanence to be immortal
