“Love You Once Made” by Valerie June

“You can leave knowing you did all you could.”

You can leave knowing
You did all you could
You could have said ten thousand words
Done all the things that you should

Time’s hands turn
To point straight your way
A memory faded to dust
Of a love you once made

There were the nights of the midnight ramble
The roll and tumble, the toss and gamble

There were hot suppers on the table
Electric’s paid and rent was stable

We’d watch the sunsets on the shoreline
Walk hand in hand towards the star shine
Raise the windows, feel the rain dance
So sound and settled, deep in romance

You can leave knowing
You did all you could
You could have said ten thousand words
Done all the things that you should

Time’s hands turn
To point straight your way
A memory faded to dust
Of a love you once made

CPE

I'm routinely overestimated.
