never to have loved

My heart has never mended from the pain it suffered
When you turned your back to me, I never felt so helpless
Countless years pass as I pine for what was lost
I grieve for the love I had, I grieve for what it’s cost
To you we were nothing but two ships passing in the night
To me you were the sun and the moon, oh how my heart took flight
I stand here now a shadow of my former self having lost what I once loved
Wishing better my ship had stayed docked, better never to have loved
