You gave me emotions to wear
And I wore them proudly.
You gave me my first kiss
And I fell in love.
Then the miracle happened and you said , “Yes.”
She came in the night
Her words carried on a soft sigh
That channelled my senses to new heights
And floated my soul across tossing waves
Whilst my heart stopped under her fingers
And I was born anew
My passing no longer certain
Did I catch a beautiful sunset
Or a passing cloud?
Did I look into the sun and was blinded
Or did the moon steal my gaze?
Or maybe I caught sight of you,
As you fluttered past on silken wings,
Trailing your hurts behind you;
Leaving me no choice
But to share your load.
It hurts now when we part.
I return to emptiness.
No more riding the currents,
Where I fly with you mind on mind.
A part of me you always share;
A part of you I dream I do.
Ripped as I am,
I can only shed my tears;
My blinded eyes turn towards heaven
And murmur, ‘Touch me lightly for
The pain I feel now is the pain of love.’
Every day you slide a little nearer.
Each breath, like a breeze in the night
Carries you nearer to here.
My mind tells me here, my heart there,
