They said ‘take a chance on love’
Reverberating in his heart’s alcove
Someday, he knew it would happen
Someday, his feelings would be awakened.
But oh, it was too soon
Here came the sun and moon
Eyes met, hands shaken
Words flew, yet unspoken.
He knew the heart was taken
He knew it could not be broken
The feelings he tried to hide
Kept burning like fire inside.
Midnight came to utter and listen
Lips touched, yet forbidden.
Curtains fell on borrowed moments
Mending the night’s shattered fragments.
He loved the heart as his own
Guarding it from dusk ‘til dawn
His smiles were young and true,
True when he first said, ‘I love you.’
But time came for show and tell
The heart’s light bode farewell.
There he saved millions of memories
And kept them as treasured stories.
He thought it was the end
As sadness filled his head
He knew he gave it all
Amidst his heartache and downfall.
Then sparks sent from heaven
Shed light upon a hope forgotten
He knew what is his would eventually come
Hopeful and never lonesome.
If the roads would cross again,
Wounds are healed by then.
It is his turn, now, to be number one
And no longer the other man.
