Lost Promise

I always said one lifetime wasn’t enough to love you,

that I would look for you in this life,

the next and the one after that.

I thought I was being romantic,

but now it seems like I put a curse on us,

that we wouldn’t get it right this time

and we’re forced to look for new opportunities to try again.

In the next please don’t run away,

I will say less things I don’t mean

and maybe we can get it right,

so I can never have to miss you again.
