A word of deceit tricked a little girl Spelled out her being Hung over her world. Soulmate, A promise that’s taken a toll Searching for a man that’s already whole Soulmate, The promise of eternity dies in a single moment A laugh A look And it’s gone for good. Soulmate, What could, would or should have been The love that might have been Had there not been him Or her Or a present so grim. Soulmate, An entire moment While the world stands still. But you’re always early, Or just way too late. Checkmate.
