Once

I loved you once
In the time when One Republic
Sang about angels apologizing
And the beachfront was bare,
Mall-free;
In the time you wrestled with your
Darkness, your demons waltzing
With mine to a song called destiny.
In the time you would trade love
For anything,
Everything,
Even your self.
And I loved you once,
In the time when he no longer could,
Would
And knew he should.
Yes,
I loved you once
(And sometimes when the moon sits
Crescent in the sky
I dream that forever
You were mine)
