For One Night


i was yours for one night
the only one who you held tight
im trying to make the night last
slowing things down so they dont run so fast

but i know
no matter how slow
this night will go
you dont love me so

why are we here together tonight
are you trying to make me feel alright?
because it kills me that tomorrow you wont be here
the love i feel now will all just dissapear

but i guess thats how life goes
one night just for memories i suppose
a night that means nothing to you
but so much to me, if you only knew

forever i will remember your name
after this one night i wont be the same
dont think i will ever forget you
i know it sounds cliche but its true

does this change us, i guess not
how i loved you before, i forgot
but how i love you now i know
and towards the future it will grow

i remember every second of this night
the night i was finally alright
the night i didnt cry myself to sleep
but this secret i will keep

nobody gets me like you do
i love some but none like you

and remembering this night brings back my disease
my sickness where it feels like one thousand degrees
my pain when i dont have you around
a plague that makes my heart pound

this night was great because i was yours
now do i love you more? of course
so maybe we will start from here
or do the exact opposite and switch gears

the love i feel now will all just dissapear
because it kills me that tomorrow you wont be here
are you trying to make me feel alright?
why are we here together tonight

slowing things down so they dont run so fast
im trying to make this night last
im the only one who you held tonight
i was yours for one night

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
