Lost Horizon

You were Jane Wyatt
while I played my best Ronald Colman
when we met one last time
below the cresting sunset
upon the fabled bridge in Shangri-La 
where the evening’s chill reminded us
that parting is its own conclusion.
And now in this restored version
the footage of when I kissed you is missing 
with only the soundtrack of memory 
to tell of how we were once
more than a Frank Capra film.
