I never got a chance to tell you
I thought you were the one
Who’d from the start free me from delusions
That a connection would come around.
I used to think at this life’s stage
I’d never feel this way
But I soon discovered how one’s heart defies age
Feelings run amok, and then they may go astray.
If only my heart would learn discernment
So I’d not obsess over a lost cause
Instead I’d know how to bring myself fulfillment,
Because it’s NOT better to have loved and lost
Than to have never loved at all.
