Take Me Back

Scene from "Sense and Sensibility" play, produced by Saint John Theatre Company in New Brunswick
Take me back
To the collective pause 
Of breath
When the lights shifted to pink orchid.
Take me back
To the frock coats and shawls
We wore
As second skin by the grace of their fit.
Take me back
To the rolling thunder
Of change
When fortune swapped estate for cottage.
Take me back
To every word uttered
We knew
By heart and felt the earnest message.
Take me back
To all the tears we shed,
To all the love we shared - 
Still unable to talk about it more.
Take me back.
