Just Once More
Just one more time they count the cost,
Just one more online love is done,
Just one more couple tried and lost,
Just one more two becomes a one.
The newest one's a friend of mine,
A lady that I still hold dear,
But now her eyes have lost their shine,
Except for glitters from a tear.
But why are we so led astray,
To be so open to this pain,
To try so hard from far away,
To struggle when it's all in vain.
I know that there have been a few
Who managed to become a pair,
But that was only one or two,
Who found true love that they could share.
To know that all could reach their goal
Is what my heart would wish for all,
Still online loving takes its toll
As futile efforts bring a fall.
They will keep trying this I know
As love is sought by lonely hearts,
And once again the pain will show
When one abandons and departs.
But don't give up my lonely friends
For love may come from distant lands,
And grant to you the peace it sends
As romance joins your phantom hands.
This is a truth I know for sure
Because I find it holds for me,
My online lover's true and pure,
That's how it is, will always be.
