The One That Got Away

I steal a glance at you sometimes
With eyes that still wonder why
A nod, a smile, a quick hello
Is all that's left of me and you

The jokes I throw at your expense
Come from the hurt deep within
You were once a devoted lover
Now a distant, wary stranger

Did I do something wrong?
Did you find someone new?
How could all your thoughtfulness
Abruptly turn into this mess?

So, thank you for that talk
Incidental it may have been
It's good to know you truly cared
And just did not know I also did.
