The One Before the One

The one before the one

Gave a moony girl the sun

Generously shared his fun

Guaranteed love wasn’t won

 

The one before the one

Was her heart’s due break from Lent

Never asked her to repent

Never took more than he spent

 

The one before the one

Shared with her his true confessions

Showed her love was not possession

Or the subject of obsession

 

The one before the one

Proposed that she give up her bluffs

Promised her when life got tough

She was still more than enough

 

The one before the one

Was one of the great’s she’ll ever know

But planted other seeds to grow

And so it just goes to show

 

When he was to and she was fro

When he was high and she was low

When he was re and she was do

When he was stop and she was go

 

When the sun was high and day was done

Something was lost, and something won

The woman she’d never have become

Without —
