It's Back


It's back!
That love I had for you,
Has come back.
And I knew then we were through,
But it's back.
That love I had for you,
Has come back!
And I'm not sure if I'm liking it back...
Like that!

I remember when I couldn't sleep or eat,
Or even think...
Without you on my mind.
And, I remember leaving you alone to wonder...
If somebody else was shown,
A love I thought we owned.

And like that...
When I turned my back you met a match,
You said much better than me.
And like that...
You told me it was over!
You met someone much older.
Someone with warmer shoulders.

Before I knew it you were dropped,
By that one older.
And before I knew feelings stopped,
By that one older...
With warmer shoulders.
So on my door you thought you'd knock,
To see you weeping telling me...
I am that 'one' that you need.

And like that!
It's back...
That love I had for you,
Has come back.
And I knew then we were through,
But it's back.
That love I had for you,
Has come back!
And I'm not sure if I'm liking it back...
Like that!

But...
Glad I am we now can start a sequel.
A sequel you'll accept to never leave.
So glad I am you know we're different people.
People who can love each other,
And not deceive!

And like that!
It's back...
That love 'we' had together is back,
On track.

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti
