Something Precious Had To Fade
Dear one, what did you say?
A dining hall, a distant day,
It seems it was time
Speaking of my eyes,
‘They shine so bright’,
Words said (or words of this kind),
If this was true and that they did,
Because of feelings that I hid,
I must have longed
For you to stay,
But I didn’t beg you, ‘please don’t leave!’
I must have seemed so cavalier,
And something precious had to fade.
