Love so passionate we felt for each other,
My heart felt for you, what it did for no other,
But for us to become one, you did not desire,
"Friends", you preferred and slowly quenched my heart's fire.
I found favour in the eyes of another,
My love for you became like that of a brother.
She was mine and I was hers, so it would be forever.
This new love, through your heart it tore,
When my union began, then did you want more,
Too late it was, new love I now had,
Your opportunity now dashed, I was already a happy lad
Much tears you shed, your own mistake,
Propelled me to another, your heart it did break,
My love for her more powerful than ours could be,
May you also find the one who brings you glee.
