Not all true love lasts,
And if it ends, does it mean it wasn’t true?
He said, “Till we meet again.”
And they knew that this was farewell.
Before I go I must be sure
Of fortune’s will
And the bond that held us together
Of our intimate love strings
And when they were truly severed
Or why the fates that deemed us matched
Have now withdrawn their favour
Don’t leave without a word
For regret and spite will linger
Haunted by love’s bitter facade
Don’t say you can’t explain
For I’ll always wonder why
Daunted to ever love again
Tell me you love me
Then say it’s not the same
Tell me you don’t feel it
The way it used to be
For if you let me down slowly
You’ll still let me go,
all the same.
As the full moon pales
The love-light wanes in your eyes
Leaked tears of goodbye
Love that bloomed true as summer
Fades on sighing autumn winds
I hope you are all well.
I’ve been away this week,
But I’m back now, and glad to be so.
I believe, that to sacrifice a little of your own happiness for someone else’s,
Is the true essence of love.
