i guess you wouldn't remember

after how long it's been

but i did love you, once

i'm not sure what happened or how we got here

staring at each other's eyes like our souls were bared

but i did love you, once

it doesn't matter whose heart broke first

this isn't a race you can sprint your way through

but i did love you, once

you'd ask why i'm crying again like i always do

because every time i see you

i'm reminded of how i still love you

not one, twice or thrice but a gazillion times over

the cosmos would be jealous and the stars would weep with envy

but for you it's different

because you only loved me once
