That night about a week ago,
when you drove me home,
I saw you smile for the first time
I assumed you had noticed my hair
and the new dress.
My heart fluttered with renewed hope.
The next few days
flew by in a happy haze;
The smile still upon your face
Then last night,
while you were asleep
I heard you call out a name
with so much longing
that I knew…
Your smile, like sunshine,
even though it made me glow for a while,
was never meant to warm my satellite heart.
How strange, I didn’t notice
what I can now clearly see –
A new love shines in your eyes,
purging every memory of me.
Yes, from now on,
bit by bit, every day,
whenever I’ll look into your eyes,
I know I shall see myself fading away.
