Coming by surprise you appeared on my horizon,
you brought joy and laughter.
From then on I imagined you'd be my ever after,
oh, how sure I was that you were the one.
We ran right at each other full steam ahead,
hand in hand enjoying that moment in the sun.
I'd always known it was you, my only one,
never pondering possible, a moment with you I would dread.
I did not know the truth of your goal,
nor that you'd cause me to grieve.
Never imagining a day you'd just decide to leave,
never imagining in my pain, you'd play such a role.
We were in so deep, deeper than a fairy tale,
deeper than anything I'd done.
Doing it with you was easy because you were the one.
We were perfect, perfect enough not to fail.
Failing we did, so quick, so fast,
the hundreds, maybe thousands of faces,
seeing only yours closing my eyes, you in their places.
I never thought you wouldn't be the last.
In too deep,
I know it now.
The power I gave you, oh wow.
Will I ever not see you in my sleep?
