When You No Longer Loved Me
When you no longer loved me
Why didn’t stars fall from the sky?
— Maybe they did, but you were asleep,
And dreamed only what you wanted to dream.
When my touch became loathsome to you,
Why didn’t rivers turn to blood?
— Maybe they did, but you stayed home that day,
And saw and felt only what you wanted to feel and see.
When tender words and soft caresses
No longer reached your heart and soul,
Why didn’t seven horsemen ride hard across the sky
To open seven seals binding this bitter truth?
— Maybe they did, but you were hard at work or play,
And heard only what you wanted to hear.
Then one day you no longer smiled
The way you did on the day we met,
And you no longer fell asleep in my arms,
The way you did so long ago.
— Wasn’t that wonder enough?
