Once

Once my heart I gave too cheap
Once the thought of you exited my mind like no other before
Once the breath that I breathed was to keep me alive for you alone
Once I thought it would never end

Once I caressed your body and surrendered my soul
Once I bathed your naked body with unbiased love
Once I put you before me in every imaginable way
Once you were my friend, my lover, my wife

Once you told me you loved me
Once you caressed my naked form and held me in your arms
Once you gave me a child so perfect in every way
Once you broke my heart, my trust, my will to live

Once
