I Saw You at the Fair

Scarborough-Festival-TX

 

I saw you at the fair today
Old friend and before your even say
I know it wasn’t you,
You are a thousand miles away
But I saw you anyways.
In someone who reminded me of you
Though younger, she had your eyes and face
And they took me to a place where you were there
And so today, though only in the way of a memory
Or a projection of your features and personalities onto another
You were there, and so was I
And I saw you at the fair
