Lover, I did not lie
When I said I loved you -
I braved tempests and sighs
Like gales, waves as high as
The sky for you.

Lover, remember that I cried
During our version of the long goodbye
It spanned years, and began
When I first met you.

Lover, don't forget -
In your haste to be jaded
This story gets left in your dust
The one featuring you and me
And the sad ending.
