Still


I will love you still
when my heart you cannot fill
Autumn leaves, leaves of love
Blossoms, fragrant flowers,
Pure heart-white Dove

Wintry winds...eerie sounds...
Clouds drifting, sunless sky
Trees as my heart, barren of leaves
Summer awaits, love sleeps

Shine bright sun! Cloudless sky
Awaken! 'Spring' of love
Awaken our hearts to blossom

Leaves, as our spirits re-birth
Blossoms' immortal fragrance
Breath of life, my heart to fill

'I will love you, still'

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
