Once upon another life
I held your heartaches close,
your hopes and dreams two hearts it seems
of storied grandiose.
Swept for me the sun and stars
the sky and moon and very air,
the simple batting of your eyes
or tossing of your hair.
Deep within our reckless bliss
our love did know no bounds,
we were our hearts and lips and hands
our silence and our sounds.
Seems that fate could not allow
nor cupid's arrow pierce,
Aphrodite can't protect
this love we love too fierce.
Tossed to wind and left to float
through endless days of strife,
still I hold your heartaches close
perhaps another life.
