Love Just Once

love_by_starduskdreams_d1ppqmg-fullview

Love just once, my son

Please! I beg you,

love just once

Cross a million mountains,

and brave the stormy seas

Open just one lock,

you may use a billion keys

But love just once,

please, love just once

Love just once, my son

at least, love just once

Live a million lives,

and die a billion deaths

Open just one book,

you may take a zillion breaths

But love just once,

at least, love just once

Love just once, my son

at least, love just once

For when you grow old,

and silence rules

the long nights

For when you grow lonely,

and nostalgia

comes back and bites

You think of that love

and once again

the sun shines bright

Love just once, my son

at least, love just once

For when nothing stands,

between you

and the final end

For when the path grows short,

and the dust smiles

across the next bend

You think of that love

and find once again

a lost friend
