Saracity

They'll be no such thing, as what might have been  
You smiled at me, 'twas your mating call  
You wouldn't lose me, or let me out of sight.  

Canadian winters can be so mean  
Come get warm, you said, as the snow did fall  
They'll be no such thing, as what might have been.  

We arrived at your abode, so bright  
Atmosphere better than meeting at the mall  
You wouldn't lose me, or let me out of sight.  
 
Another surprise, a hot meal this night  
I was in such pain, and you broke my fall  
They'll be no such thing, as what might have been.  
 
In the darkness of pain, you were my light  
You made me vulnerable, broke down all walls  
You wouldn't lose me, or let me out of sight.  
 
You encouraged that lost side of my being  
I thought it had died, but had not at all  
They'll be no such thing, as what might have been  
You wouldn't lose me, or let me out of sight ....!

Written in Villanelle style with a couple line variations thrown in...
