Was I A Fool For Loving Her?

Updated on June 20, 2017

Naxaal.

Gift.

For you, a thousand times over.

I would have done anything,

Climbed the tallest mountains,

Crossed over treacherous seas,

Anything that would have allowed me to hold you in my arms.

Oh, how I loved thee,

More than I have loved any other.

Together, we were a still of love and happiness.

Together we rose, and together we fell.

Maybe I was a fool for falling for you so deeply,

I lost myself in you,

I was so immersed in your love and passion; I had started to forget myself.

Only now that we are apart have I begun to see that we’re better off this way.

Two separate sides of different equations,

Our relationship was doomed from the beginning.

Maybe I was a fool for loving you,

But I don’t regret having your chest pressed against mine, or the taste of your lips.

I don’t regret the conversations we had late at night, while I waited for you to fall asleep.

I saw you, a mansion with a grand swimming pool and even our wedding day.

Call me a fool for getting enthralled by the words you had to say,

But I was one happy fool.

The song that summed up our relationship.
