becomes me even,
Now in these some later years,
While yearning to express beautiful,
Desires holding back tears.
There's a dream my love I've hidden in,
My heart's well of desire,
For most of my life wishing you would,
Truly of me enquire.
That wasn't to be the way we were,
Even though my dreams told me,
Differently yet we trailed our own,
Paths into reality.
Even so mem'ries still touch my soul,
With beautiful thoughts of you,
More and more every day as I dream,
We've lost one love ever true.
The reflections of you swirl deeply,
Within my mind as vision,
While desire wells inside even,
Embracing Divine reason.
I have remembered only the sweet,
Loving moments together,
Inviting them into my heart for,
There was never another.
Only yesterday's sweet reverie brings,
You my love to me awhile,
Daydreaming of a once kind of love,
And the way I made you smile.
Especially on the evenings when,
Our eyes met with a closeness,
Such beautiful feelings stirred within,
Receiving God's blessedness.
There was a glowing happiness when,
Lips met in one special kiss,
Those feelings of new found love were us,
Such sweetness I reminisce.
Now tears that were are no longer nor,
Do dreams of you still exist,
True love's life together as one is,
Another sweet kiss we've missed.
A love once but never fulfilled use,
To bring tears of you my love,
Yet memory's beautiful longings,
Never were from God Above.
How my heart's well of desire now,
Is foolishness nonetheless,
Yearning to express love's loveliness,
In one kiss, one sweet caress.
