Jasmine Tea

Once a day I would meet a girl named Jasmine, 
Who gave me a cup of Jasmine tea

The warm, flowing liquid went down my throat,
A smile dancing upon my cheeks as I enjoyed the taste each day,
Which brought her a million delights

Once a week I met a girl named Jasmine,
Who gave me a cup of Jasmine tea

The warm liquid turn to a lukewarm temperature, 
But it was her heart and soul into a cup that I so enjoyed, 
The weakest smile spreads across her face,
"No fret" she spoke though ever so softly,
Almost like a lie

Once a year I met a girl named Jasmine, 
Who gave me a cup of Jasmine tea, 

The tea was a bitter coldness like frostbite had been, 
Making me wince a couple of times on the spot with a quiet cough to follow, 
Her eyes were the same as the tea this time around,
With eyes telling you she was done with this horrible planet

Once a year I met a woman who was named Jasmine,
Who used to give me Jasmine tea 

Ah, I wish we were back in the golden time days,
As I sit and pray along your grave wishing back for our youth as mindless teens,
Would I have saved you if I listened to you instead of the tastes of Jasmine? 
I hope for one day to meet you on the Heaven's side holding a cup of Jasmine tea,
To finally listen to you once again
