Her Bittersweet Story

A song I wrote on the 27.12.2010 and here, two years later, 15.01.2013, it still rings even truer than ever for me.

Her Bittersweet Story

She was young, sweet, and naieve,
So cold and lonely, alone in the world.
She sought for that love she needed yet could not find.

Then one day he saw her pain, felt her hurt
Touched the tears on her cheek and asked her what's wrong.
He leaned down and gently picked up her lonely heart and she was home,
Yet they knew they could not have each other.

Chorus:
Her bittersweet story,
To be loved by none, then loved by one she could not have.

They spent the summer side by side,
Loved, laughed and shared their lives,
Yet they knew the time would come when with broken heart
He spoke of his kids, mentioned his wife,
Kissed her good-bye and was gone.

Chorus:
Her bittersweet story,
To be loved by none, then loved by one she could not have.

She grew up, people came and left her life,
She did what she did, traveled the world, settled down, still alone.
In her quiet moments reminisce his eyes, his smile, his kiss and

Chorus:
Her bittersweet story,
To be loved by none, then loved by one she could not have.

Years passed; she grew into a woman of strength
That only broken hearts can bring.
Many asked her why she never sought another, and
With a voice ringing of loyalty and tears in her eyes, she'd tell them

Chorus:
Her bittersweet story,
To be loved by none, then loved by one she could not have.

Under the tree where they discovered their first kiss
Stood a solitary lady...it was her...with a tender smile on her aged face,
Remembering the one close friendship she had,
The taste of his kiss, the magic in his touch, the love they shared and

Chorus:
Her bittersweet story,
To be loved by none, then loved by one she could not have.

Then that voice she knew and loved so well called her name,
She turned, it was he. He was there. Her heart raced, and he said,
"Babe, I never stopped loving you."

Nice song you sure write well!

Thanks. It doesn't have a melody or music, hence the irregularity in the rhythm and non existent rhyme. lol
