The One

by Tony Whitaker




Most everyone someday laments
About a love they call “The One”
“The One” haunts their heart
With tormented belated regrets
“The One” fills their memories and
“The One” they can’t forget
They endeavor to find another
But never to be outdone
For the memories will fill their days
And a want for another run
And if that chance were given,
Their actions would then commit
To have and hold, hug and kiss
To remove any worldly threat
So if “The One” is in your life
Never give them reason to run

Now as I reflect on that special person
“The One” I loved and lost
To return to that time
To relive those days
This time I would not falter
I would fully give my life and love
No matter what the cost
And to smile as I see her walk to me
As I stand upon the altar
Now twenty years have disappeared
“The One” has long been gone
And though now I love another
My memories of “The One” live on

Damn, man. The other one was good, but this thing's a whole other field. Really great, well-written, strong, relentless imagery, handled by an extremely interesting voice. This is strong stuff indeed, man.
