What Once Went Before

We met by the green
in a pub with fine wine,
we laughed at the terrorist
wasting his time.

You spoke of your life,
and how you loved yoga,
I ordered a drink
a sweet lime and soda.

Our first kiss was nervous,
our second a pleasure,
by the end of the night
we thought this was forever.

We spent nights together
and days trading words,
such terms of affection
I’ve never once heard.

But cry out alas,
it wasn’t to be,
we came to the end of
our wonderful journey.

And now you have someone
to share in your life,
a man of such kindness,
and wit like a knife.

I smile in remembrance
of all that we had,
what once went before
wasn’t so bad.
