Once Upon a Memory

Once upon a memory,
I was in love.
I saw his face
and knew at once,
that he was the one for me.

I was so shy,
but he was so patient,
and quickly we fell in love.

Tumbling,
Falling,
the breeze in my hair.
You were there as i fell through the air.

You were like the air for me,
and later we might have gotten married.

I do not know what did go wrong,
but soon this merry dream would end.

Because I fell ill
and lost the battle,
leaving you, my love, behind.

All good things must end,
and some things just don’t work.
Like Alice had to leave Wonderland,
and Romeo and Juliet were torn apart,
I had to leave you, my dear,
and letting go was the hardest thing ever.

But I was never Juliet,
and you weren’t Romeo,
Our love was true “Until death do we part”

So now you live without me,
but I’m right there in your heart.
