Behind These Walls


If the universe should shrink up and die
I would still hold on to you
Not through fear, or pain, or hope
But because, I love you

If my eyes that I trust went blind
Then all I'd ever want to see
Is the look I'll hold eternally
Of your face, as it smiles on me

' Cause girl you are my centre of my life, my thoughts
Heaven stands between you and Earth
And while I live, I need no more
Than your love behind these walls

Break

As we make love, it occurres to me
All time is measured, by our heartbeat
A moment stolen from eternity
And ignites the flame of love through you and me
And while I live, I need no more
Then your love, behind these walls

If the universe should shrink up and die
I would still hold on to you
Not through fear, or pain, or hope
But because, I love you

Poem of the Day

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
