heart belongs not to me,
You captivated my soul long ago,
Gentle kisses upon my cheek,
Like a summer's soft breeze flow.
You took what I lovingly offered,
Our love was filled with bliss,
Capturing my heart in a steel grip,
A moment of sharing was not missed.
Yet rain clouds began to hover,
Blocking out the sun's warming view,
Leaving me with such wanting,
What is happening between me and you?
The love I generously offer,
Is now carelessly tossed back to me,
Breaking the heart that loves you,
If only our fervent love could be.
My heart is held prisoner,
Bound by the love of you,
Yet even the butterflies are free,
Unloosening I long for too.
