Twice Shy

It wasn’t until once
To sometimes take perhaps a two
To then have once for a second chance
Funny how I know yet never knew

I’m to guess it happen before
Perhaps a second guess to encounter once again
Did a first time happen once more?
Or did I remember to forget ever the same?

Thrice and I am shy
Might I accidentally question myself?
I cross my heart yet I ask why
Is there that promise or yet something else?

One two three and yet a fourth
I remember I don’t remember anymore so
Simply a because was the caused
Was there ever the first time that I know?

A repeated pattern from a following once
To only remember after a yet shying two
Not everything though deserves a second chance
That I know yet funny I never knew
