Once Again


Hidden behind a cover of cigarette smoke…

You could see his sad eyes and a heart that broke…

When she left him for good…

If only he’d understood.

How she had waited and waited as the years flew by,

She was always with ‘just another guy’…

Till one came and didn’t let her go…

And she didn’t find a reason to say no.

Still she waited, debated and yearned in vain…

Till she finally decided he wasn’t worth the pain…

So now he’s hiding behind smoke and booze…

Beginning to comprehend what he’s about to lose…

‘I’m not good enough’, he thinks with a rueful smile..

His baby’s going to move away…many a mile…

‘Stop her, do something’, his friends beseech…

So with a pounding heart he runs all the way to her street…

To see an empty house, she left without saying goodbye…

Have you ever seen a grown man cry?

He walks back home, dragging his feet..

‘Wait’! A familiar voice…his heart skips a beat…

She pulls him around by the arm, ‘I didn’t leave’,

‘That’s great,’ he whispers..,’ I know now what it is to really grieve’

He kisses those lips, and then kisses them again…

Love was dulling out the surge of pain..
