At One Time

At one time she loved him

But that was years ago

Friendship is what remains

All that’s left to show

Still, every now and then

She longs for yesterday

To feel the swell of passion

Be caught up in its sway

Those dreams are just a memory

The remnants of the past

The taste of bittersweet longing

A love that failed to last
