Once Upon Another Time
Once upon another time
There lived a girl whose heart was mine.
For I loved her and she loved me,
Together we would always be.
But times have changed and so have we,
Allowing us new paths to see.
Those promises which once we kept
Have faded as we overslept.
And passing time and growing distance
Have slowly dulled, then killed, resistance.
Allowing other doors to open,
Other pledges to be spoken.
Until, as now, the past forgotten,
We venture on new paths untrodden.
To face a future, yet unknown,
Both of us left still alone.
