We loved we cried
In the rain arms in arms;
 Cuddled like Siamese twins
We sang a song of unity
Hoping for better moments together.
Young hearts
We never understood what love is
It’s gentle feel, nor its overwhelming feel
Reasons why you had to leave me for good.
Memories of you fading in my heart
Save for the mirror on the wall
In it I see your pretty face
Telling me that our love can begin anew.
You might be long gone
But my heart belongs solely to you
The mirror says it all.
You never wanted to leave me,
It wasn’t just you
Now I see the new you, 
Spelling out my name in a sweet sonorous voice
Telling me we can soar the heights of love once more
I will love you once more
Again, again and again.
