About A Million Times


I fell in love once

About a million times

My world narrowed

To the singular

The one-in-a-million

Could ne’er be replaced


A unique loving beauty

Soulmate, blessed fate

The air that I breathe

But more breeze than wind

And, indeed, a common thread

Was woven within each


For as the winds blow

Each breeze becomes history

Carrying the scent of next

Old flames prefaced by “ex”

And I survive, barely alive

Only to fall in love again


I fell in love once

About a million times
