THOUGHTS OF YOU
The thoughts of you were once exciting,
They used to awake the rhythms inside
My imagination would drive me to wild conclusions
Till the day we met and our bodies collided
We met under stars and the music was playing
The people surrounded as we danced apart
The force was so strong, and all I wanted
Was to feel the warmth of your skin against mine
We finally linked as the days had passed
To start a friendship who would grow into love.
A love that would drive me to cross the river,
The bridge which, at last, linked our worlds, our hearts.
I had wished it would last till the seas would dry,
Till the seasons would seize to change and come back.
The leaves started falling when our worlds were colliding
Our hopes of true love fled away in the wind.
To leave you was arduous ,
too quick and too harsh
The tears were rushing
And the days made scarce
I now find myself appraising our love
But to encounter no lust, no craving, no joy
Instead I shed tears of frustration inside
For a love which grew strong and so suddenly killed
A shame that our paths were not met to lead
To the same happy ending I would have loved to arrive
Now dropping the anchor in rivers of tears
I try to keep smiling for I have reached new lands.
I know you are there over fields and mountains
I will think of our good times and days of sunshine
To dry out the rivers which now, divide us,
Maybe in turn we will unite once more.
