In celebration of valentine’s day I decided to do a little writing. Hope it’s an enjoyable day for everyone.
Five Loves And You
Three simple words can mean a world to them
“I love you” takes you and you, and makes it you and him.
There were five loves before you came that along
They all came and went but each seemed so wrong.
They never meant as much to me as you
They all had purpose from which my love grew.
Who she was, was the beginning of the end
The start of dating life and the start of a trend.
She was my first and it ended early on
But it never went away, it was never truly gone.
The innocence surrounding it, it seemed at ease
Being in high school we wanted time to just freeze.
What she was, was anything but simple and serene
Hiding what was happening behind a smoke screen.
By day it was professional, knowledgeable and right
But after we left the office it was a much different sight.
It was cherished and wonderful but in the end it was too much
Sadly it vanished and we never stayed in touch.
When she was, was a period of great chance
It was sudden and rapid, a quick jump at romance.
We were both finishing school and looking ahead
Not knowing at that the paths were separately led.
Yet the timing was not right, differences were there
What once seemed so promising vanished into thin air.
Where she was, was playing summer ball in a different state
It was a random chance meeting that led to this fate.
I went for a month to play ball and enjoy my stay
But in that time something there wouldn’t let me pull away.
There was so much distance, no chance for it to be
Sometimes I wonder if I stayed longer would I get a chance to see.
Why she was, was for every chance that never might exist
For every person out there who won’t experience that kiss.
You love because you can, you are able to give and receive
Sometimes it doesn’t go your way and sometimes we grieve.
But why we do it shouldn’t be for anyone else except our own
And on the day that it happens, our paths will be shown.
But you bring them together and make it all whole
You are wonderful, and my heart you have stole.
Each love came before but I already knew
And each heartbreak has brought me closer to you.
