We don’t always get a happy ever after
Sometimes it all falls apart
Some get just one chance and blow it
That’s the thing with affairs of the heart
You’ll never know if it will last
Maybe it’s lust and the encounter will be brisk
But a true love that could last forever
Surely that’s well worth the risk?
What if you’re too scared to jump in?
Or even to dangle your toe?
What if that person is ‘the one?’
How will you feel when you’re watching them go?
It’s better to have loved and have lost
Is the general consensus it seems
Keep searching and loving and eventually
You’ll meet them, ‘the one’ from your dreams
