Once we were a true And passionate lovers: You were the bright Moon And I, the jealous Sun; We couldn’t live Without one another!
From my past I can’t erase, Those great moments That days and nights We joyfully shared And that now I vividly recall!
We were so tied together Like two bodies and one soul: I became the gardener And you, a beautiful rose! You were the diamond And I, the holding ring!
As time transpired, Things drastically changed, I thought our love Was beautiful and perfect But for one reason or another, Love became a silly game!
No longer were we tied When I sadly discovered That all along it was a game Carefully designed on your own With no fair rules to play!
Openly you took advantage Of my love and devotion for you When in front of total strangers, You made me look like a fool!
I couldn’t any longer tolerate You turning my love and feelings Into a silly game of your make And I decided to leave you alone, Like in a Solitaire’s game: Just playing on your own!
