There Was a Time

Thoughts of death - a wish, a hope, a fear.
There was a time he used to hold life dear.
The facets of the jewel, now opaque.
The glittering that used to be, was shaken
all apart. He tried so hard to start just
one more time. But nothing there would
rhyme, without her love to see him through.

And he pretended that he never knew.
Never knew the ecstasy they'd shared.
Never knew the healing, that only loving
dared to bring. Never knew the way to sing
her world into a state of happiness. Never
told her that their kiss would last, forevermore.

Thoughts of death - a wish, a hope, a fear.
There was a time he used to hold life dear.
The facets of the jewel, now opaque.
The glittering that used to be was shaken
all apart. He tried so hard to start just
one more time. But nothing there would
rhyme, without her love to see him through...
