I wish you were more
than just a fleeting day;
More than a cloud effaced
Before I began to find its face.
Or a bud that bloomed at night
And died before the dawn could sight.
I made a wish on something.
My heart rose up as I saw it fall
But you were gone in a blink.
They are in disbelieve and I’m the fool!
You were there, weren’t you?
I couldn’t just have made you up
Can a human heart be so full of it?
Is it even capable of such beautiful disgrace?
You were Kisses meant only for the dark.
You gave me passions that I can never claim.
Behind the fallen curtains, we stole
The moments that the world never saw.
We made promises
Like a child who seeks refuge
In the castles by the shore.
Ours was a love out of desperation
Not from the heart of our souls
We named the flickering lust as love
We are still safe in my heart
The way I want us to be,
Not the way we actually are.
The time snatched away the good-
Unveiled the deception that was you.
And now I’m just as naked and lost
As the orphan baby newly born.
If for a moment I can have you back
Will you play the same old part?
The one that warmed my heart
So subtly in that late winter morn.
So that I can love you again, the way
My heart desires to always.
