Apart but Still a Part

You were a trophy invaluable
Who brought joy unfathomable

Your discovery was a happenstance 
My realization of you, the essence of my existence

Memories we made in collaboration
A lifetime in contemplation

I left you in search of pastures greener
Turning by the day meaner

To your glory I became oblivious
Overpowered by desires delirious 

My longing for you entail efforts vain
The quest brings immense pain

You let me go, I let go of you
None of us got our due

Estranged but still a part
Even time cannot do us apart

As you live in my memory strong
You were my own version carefree not ago too long

As the new you I am your reflection
Separated from you by the veil of identification
