A flame once burned

Written by: jack horne

I know that we must surely part
Another shines within your heart
The closeness gone, the magic dead
Your love belongs to her instead

The tears I shed, unseen, unheard
And once you hung on every word
Resigned, I see I lost the fight
Our love won’t last another night

Usurped, I toss my ring away
It’s pointless begging you to stay
