I was the one

I was the one

who was the subject of that gaze.

The sparkle in your eyes

always shed light upon my face.

You lit up when you saw me,

like the sun shines upon the moon,

but it’s dark now

and it won’t be day again soon.

 

Now you look at her in that special way

and at me as if I’m just a passer-by.

She’s your moon now

and I’m just an ever-orbiting thing

that can’t break away,

that can’t say goodbye.
