Spell Fades Away
All was scary as we crouched down to wait,
In the shadows for a victim chosen by fate.
T'was supposed to be a holiday of misery,
But apparently, my heart has chosen another story.
At the stroke of midnight, a spell is broken,
A spell of family, one of women and men.
But why with this spell I choose to bother?
For 'twas not cast by a fairy godmother.
Ever since youth, we've only had each other.
Our sympathies were only for one another.
We were together, through fear and loneliness,
You and I, were each other's happiness.
But now you have her, and the spell fades away,
The end of our co-dependence might as well come today.
The spell on our carriage, after all, can't last forever,
One day it'll no longer be you and me together.
Should I be glad that you finally found
Someone other than me to whom you are bound?
But when that day comes; when I'll have to lose you,
When that time comes, I don't know what I'll do.
