The bitter chocolate

Once upon a time, many many years ago
when the stars were brighter and the birds happier singing so

there lived two people in love
the sky shining over them from above

Such days they had and such nights
yielding words in each other's soft syllables and melted hearts

many times he wished he could stop the clock
to hold and freeze those hasty tick and tock

and came the time to say bye
to leave the world with a sigh

so temporary; so soon; so short the end seemed to appear
the sweet moments blending up in tear

leaving the other one in grief; the destiny unkind
what’s more bitter than being left behind?
