ONCE LOVED

I once loved you sweetheart, now I don't know what to think You come knocking on my door from far across the sea I see nothing I once knew as far as eyes can see For you were once buxom, evergreen like a pine Yes you were once noble, a citadel of mine. I once loved you sweetheart, now I don't know what to think Now you are thin as stalk of corn Yes you look sick and so forlorn Your skin was dark and once aglow But now as pale as trampled snow. I once loved you sweetheart, now I don't know what to think Your hair once full, curly and black Is now reddish, crying of lack Your face once clear and filled with pride Is now painted, wrinkled and dried. I once loved you sweetheart, now I don't know what to think Your nails once pink, all span and spick Are now entombed in hard plastic Your eyes once brown and round and bright Are now deep green and dull as night. I once loved you sweetheart, now I don't know how I will Your inborn charm that was, is nil.
