Loraine Lotter (South Africa)
In Heaven We Shall Meet
There you go again, driving out the yard.
You took with you tonight more than just my heart.
It’s sad to watch you leave and it hurts to see you go,
and you might already comprehend; I’ll never leave you alone.
Time with you runs out way too quickly every night.
You’ll smile at me and send a shiver straight down my spine.
Sometimes I can’t help wondering what goes on inside your mind,
and like clockwork you’ll say it’s me you think ‘bout all the time.
It was from the first few seconds that I realized the truth;
you swept me off my feet in just one easy, perfect swoop.
Though we’ve spent a week apart before, it still doesn’t mean I’m fine
with watching as you drive out of the front yard every night.
I’ll even play an addictive love song just to keep your arms ‘round me,
‘cause with both of us holding on, we can easily believe.
Like two dumbstruck fools in love we will keep this remedy
till our hearts stop beating, then in heaven we shall meet.
