And for once…

…and for once 
I want to forget everything
that didn’t work out
I want the sad memories to fade away
and be followed by
only the happy ones…

tonight, can I leave behind?
the heartaches
caused by the impossible would-bes…
can I step aside?
and make way for the crippling afflictions to pass…
can I look past your cruel carelessness
that paralysed my affections…
…and, just this once,
perhaps, just for tonight,

can I allow myself
to fall in love with you again?
