It didn't happen...

The ball has been dropped,

shadows have grown long.

The dreams we made blissfully

in clouds of love and starry eyes

have now ended their possibility.

It will never happen.

For we were to be so very brave

and never shed a tear before

this audience of humankind,

even when our yearning hearts

are pierced through and through

and the world falls at our feet

in piles of dust and desperation.

Can't you see, my love,

that it didn't happen...

and it was never meant to be?
