From the moment they met they were in love
a love as deep and strong as the sea
His hug fit her just like a glove
and when she saw him she sparkled with glee.
but a curse was on them as old as time,
and time was running out for him.
fifteen years her love sublime
would die and leave him alone and grim,
...alone and grim, in time.
The more joy he felt, the more it hurt.
The more he knew his time was ending soon.
She would turn on him, her love would divert,
and from his chest his heart would be hewn.
Smiles like warm gold summer sun,
her hair like a cool new morning breeze.
She'd leave him as soon as she could run.
His steps would falter, and his chest would seize, he'd fall to his knees,
From the day she was born they were in love.
A fathers love as strong as the sea.
He held her tight, tight as a glove.
When she opened her eyes she sparkled with glee, sparkled at me.
But he suffered the curse of all fathers through time.
Eventually she'd lose faith in him.
and the love they once found sublime,
would turn to revulsion dark and grim, she'd learn to hate him, in time.
