To my sweetheart.
You'll always be my first and only.
I'll love you forever.

How do I stop loving you?

And the things that you do

Or the way that you smile

Or your charm that beguiles?

Your eyes as green as spring time

Melting the winter dark of my insides

Dishonest hope shining like sunrays

But even I am content to sit and bathe

Under a fake and setting sun

I see the truth of your smile

I dream of white, of church aisles

I hear the love still in your voice

‘Follow your heart’ would be an ill-favored choice

My choice: with you only I’d sleep

Your arms, from storms and pain you’d keep

Me safe, and still I wonder why

I closed my eyes and bought a lie.
