Tiger Lily

My Love, My Only Love Poem by Tiger Lily

My love, my only love
Do you remember laying soft beside me
When the stars gathered bright
To form our fate of what was to be

And what was to be

My love, my only love
That sparkling garland is falling now
The tiny flecks fall like snow
Around our heads they gather forming what we never know

And love we never know

My love, my only love
I watched you from afar, so long
For so long, you say you never knew
Never noticing my love for you that grew

My love for you that grew, still grows

My love, my only love
Took a chance with another one
And denied my love, speaking to her the same words
And placed her far above

And placed her far above

My love, my only love
Do you know what you have done
You leave my heart to wonder
Still, you tell me I'm the one

Love, still I wonder
