More than Once in a While

If I wasn't what you wanted
If I wasn't even close
I only hope that I made you smile...
Maybe more than once in a while...
- Kasey Chambers

"Close the courtains", you said once,
And made love to me under the dim light of a tv screen,
While listening to someone selling dreams
For ninety-nine cents a minute, or even more.

I never thought I would look back at those moments
And smile at the sight of your tears
When I turned and walked away.
I never realized how deep the cut had been
until it was too late.

How blessed are those who forgive, forget, and renew!
For I am walking in the rain downtown,
Thinking of how many times I wished I'd never met you
For the sole reason that the freedom you took away,
Was the only thing that past lovers had left behind.
