When I Loved You

Looking back
Across the time
I can see that love
I used to know

The strength
The passion
Lost with time

I was the only one
For whom you promised
No other girl
No other woman
Has won your heart
So completely as I have

Until her
I am the only one
Until her
I was your greatest love
But when you meet her
You’ll know
For the greatest love you’ll ever have
Will be for the one you call your wife

And she will be the luckiest woman
Because she has your love

You’re always so beautiful

He said to me
A blush came over my cheeks
I didn’t know what to say
I murmured a thanks
And continued with the service

It was always the same
He’d hand over his passport
I would make light conversation with him
I was always smiling
Always happy to see him
He wouldn’t say much
And I never pushed too hard
He’d hand me the money
And start on his test

It would always end the same too
He would stand up and look at me
We would share a moment of understanding
As he sadly left
There was the unspoken promise that he would return again

Today was different
Today he was bold
Bold enough to ask me
About myself

But you and I
I know will never be
You like him…
Belong in a world separate from mine
