Yesterday your words were soft and sweet
your tender kisses so complete..
Your touch a song of life to come
Today your words are quick and harsh
you look at me with troubled/fleeting glance
Tomorrow you will be elsewhere
wherever takes you unaware
your interest will be there
And I will sit and wait and hope
remembering the slightest touch
Hoping you will soon return
My longing for you will burn and burn
Soon I will accept less and less
happiness altered/feelings haltered
Convincing myself that all is well
and that our love is strong
Then I will forget who we were
who I am and what we had
accepting less..until all love is gone
and you and I are but a shell
Today I choose to start anew
to walk away from all I know
you can’t hold onto what never was
Your lies unfolded all our love
My heart was yours but not today..
Your empty heart I give you back
Life calls to me /been whispering patiently
Your lies to me are Yours to keep
wrap yourself tightly and hope you can Sleep!
