Time was never on our side.
Though the spark was there, even then
We were far too young when we met.
All I had to give, those days, were
Shy smiles as we talked till the sun set.
But we spent our time together, still
You used to be my best friend.
Then you left and soon forgot me,
Perhaps things changed and life
Kept you far too busy.
School finished and you found me
Once more. We picked up where we left off,
It was as if you had never gone
And I discovered that I had loved you,
Somehow, all along.
I thought this was it, you were the one
The flame burned bright, for a while,
It touched every inch of our stars
You tried to hold on, and so did I
But alas, the time was never ours.
