I once swore, I'd love no more
Devotion to no soul
No one but me, Alone to be
No half of any whole

She changed my mind, Her words were kind
She got into my heart
Within my mind, with time and grind
I saw a future start

It could not be, She would not see
The person I became
We'd fight and fight, though neither right
And suffered through the pain

I gave my best, I braved the test
And crumbled to my feet
My victory evaded me
My failure was complete

Alone again, to stroll again
The path leads where it will
I cannot cry, but can't deny
In truth I love her still

I don't regret, don't pout or fret
My smile shall ever beam
If I can't have her in my life
Ill keep her in my dreams...
