I still vividly remember
The day we first met
It was a late summer evening
The sun had just set…
You were on the other side of the window
Yet you seemed a world away
I knew I had to make you mine
There couldn’t be any other way!
Hesitantly, I approached you
Scared that you won’t understand
That you would make fun of my feelings
And refuse to hold my hand.
But the gentle soul that you were
You gave yourself over to me
And just as simple as that
‘You’ and ‘I’ became ‘We’!
You made me stand tall
You made me feel beautiful
With you, I could never fall.
I remember how we ran laughing down the aisle
How we danced and we swirled
Our love was there for all to see
We were the envy of the world!!
Rarely did two souls ever ‘fit’ so perfectly
True love was hard to find..
Then why did you suddenly ‘break’ away from me?
What made you change your mind?
Do you even know
How mercilessly you stamped on my heart?
I’m back to being as ‘alone’
As I was at the very start
And now I really don’t know
What I’m going to do…
Where am I going to find another
Beautiful pair of red stilettos like you??
