For a time

For a time

You were everything.
Your smile
Lit sparks
That raced
Down my spine,

My heart skipped a beat
When you
Spoke to me.
The world paused
So we could run free.
You seemed so divine

For a time.

Things always change.
Forever’s a dream,
Every summer
Has rain.
I stopped being
The light in your world,

Once again
You’re a mystery girl.
I know you’ll find love,
I know you’re not mine,
But I want you to know
I was yours

For a time.
