Sometimes One Life Isn’t Enough (to get it wrong)


A lover’s tale now twice is told
Two lifetimes gripped in passion bold
Where mysteries once dared enfold
A new life forged from one so old

They met by soul in just one glance
A heartbeat, blink, a onetime chance
Encounter with a true romance
A naked waltz, the lover’s dance

Yet tortured hearts no more beat fast
For passion’s fire, cold at last
Leaves darkened eyes and shadows cast
Young love destroyed from ages past.
