Like a Rose


Birds clear off the sky
clouds clear of the storm
the sun shining before our eyes
we sit hear staring at on each other
only you and I
in me, you bleed
and in you, I freeze
in you I see
that you and me
can be a we
with you I want infinity
‘cos you a child of divinity
you and I can have a love forever
only if you breath in me
and free
the he in me
in you I freeze
‘cos you’ve captured me
now am here
I want you here
‘cos am prepared
and I will not let anything interfere
my dear
keep me close
the one you choose
and froze
like a rose
my dear
You are beautiful
