You and I, though far apart

Apart save but for our minds

Minds alike more often clash

Clash, yet both stay entwined

You and I wiled away our nights

Nights of loving masquerade

Masquerade for me a wondrous epic

Epic of love that would not fade

You and I will last for all of time

Time perhaps, to face the truth

Truth that you and I aren't paired at all

All these dreams discarded sleuth

You and I, voicing lover's words

Words our heads will strive to save

Save for those that haunt me so

So long your carefree single days!
