What Became of Then?

Darling, what became of When?
We were younger, strong on dreams
Was I nearer to you then
Before years unraveled skeins?

Darling, what became of Them?
When our talk was brave and green
Was I clearer to you then
Before years wedged in between?

Darling, what became of Us?
Cheek to cheek and heart to heart
Was I dearer to you, love
Before years drew us apart?
