Failed Love

A stranger you were
Till you came near
Then I understood why you came
A lesson to learn, a tale to tell

Like the air, you blew against my face
My heart laughed at the mention of your name
And gave hope that you came to stay
A lesson to learn, a tale to tell

With nothing you came but with all you left
The tiniest of hope you took along, too
This heart in pain shall live
A lesson to learn, a tale to tell

Failed love you are
False hope you gave
Memories like time shall cease to be
For hope again will return
A lesson to learn, a tale to tell
