Phasing out of Unrequited Love

The full moon is rising again,

For the 17th time since you said:

“Get lost!”

So away I went.

What a journey I’ve had since then,

Where nothing has made any sense.

If life is a treasure hunt,

All the clues point back to you.

If love is the jackpot,

Your number is 777.

If it’s all for something precious,

You provided the diamond necklace.

If it’s about wishing on a four-leaf,

You were the magic answer.

If it’s about seeing the incredible Universe,

You were the shooting star alighting it.

If it’s happiness with another half,

You’re the one who made me laugh.

If it’s about opening happiness,

You were a can of Coca-Cola.

If it’s all about simple beauty,

I thought I’d found a butterfly.

If it’s about dancing on air,

Then you were my Fred Astaire.

Gradually I see the moon get higher,

Surrounded by its ring,

That ring at night,

Only a Sheppard’s delight;

As I know the Universe I must defy;

Without you, I must make my way.

Love, honour and obey.

Heaven’s got a plan for me…
