Every time I listen to Coldplay,
I am transported to that time and
Place of bare and poignant beauty,
Of simple but sufficient desires,
Of untrained and pure affection.
I am reminded of her: friend,
Intelligent, stubborn; eyes with
Faint unpencilled dark lines under.
I am reminded of expectation
And hope and fun and laughter.
I heard a saying once:
“Everyone and everything
Comes into your life for a reason,
And if not that, for a season,
And if not that, for a lifetime.”
She was for a reason and a season.
Coldplay was for a lifetime
Of music and beauty and magic!
This is a work of fiction
