A Year Has Passed

A year's gone by since I last heard your voice
Yet, I still hear it at least once a day
Whenever a certain song comes my way
Oh, I wish loving you was just a choice

I didn't know what I thought would happen
When a year marked this anniversary
Perhaps peace, if only temporary
Or a thought that might, my love's flame, dampen

But, the twelfth broke not unlike another
And, yet still, a haunting figure lingered
My heart begged for my opera singer
How it longed even still for no other

But, alas, a year has passed without her
Still I sit alone and think about her

Our love wasn't like any I'd e'er known
How she had seemingly come from a dream
How surreal each moment spent with her seemed
'Twas easy for me to lay my heart prone

Nights in the cinema and holding hands
When I held her, close, in my arms I knew
That there is nothing that I wouldn't do
To protect her heart, her dreams and her plans

Nighttime sky, in a place that was just ours
Gently kissing and sweetly embracing
While crickets nighttime voices were raising
A summer song, upward to the bright stars

But, alas, a year has passed without her
Still I sit alone and think about her

A promise ring, inexpensive, but bright
After a brisk carriage ride to our meal
Oh, how elation was hard to conceal
In millions years I won't forget that night

But, the love grew cold as tragedy struck
And, when my thoughts were divided in two
She found it hard to believe love was true
The blessing, I suppose, ran out of luck

After a month of her contemplation
She chose to end what I thought was epic
Used money as the divisive topic
Although I sought her with admiration

But, alas, a year has passed without her
Still I sit alone and think about her

Still I sit alone and think about her
I dream of all that she might well become
And reminisce of days gone by, undone
Can't believe a year has passed without her

Yet, a year, indeed, has passed without her
And, I, alone, still do think about her
