The Last Lines

The fractured night and in the distance
  The stars, they shiver, blue
I loved her. Oh, how I loved her
  And sometimes, she loved me too

It was on nights like these that I held her
And I kissed her under the stars
  Oh, she loved me, she never told me but she loved me
  And for a moment I thought the world was ours

I couldn’t keep her, no matter what I couldn't keep her
I did the wrong things, but they don’t matter now
Discontented soul, far away
I could have served you better but I didn’t know how

She made me suffer and I made her suffer
But no more, there’s no need for that now
I don’t know if I love her, but how I loved her
At least as much as she would allow

I hear the night, I hear the silence
  Blacker without her, in hours, the minutes pass
And these words, they form in defiance
And lines fall like dew on the grass

Now there’s another’s kisses on her
He’s gazing into those infinite eyes
Love is brief, forgetting lasts so long
These are the last lines that I will write.
