Strangers


I could not be
A part of the dawn
That descended
For yet another spring
In hopes with memories
Away away for the slice
Of life of one I see not
A life created in coziness
Of your presence

Standing was I there
To celebrate life
How many birthdays
In the backdropp of killer time
Yet the perfumes of your hair
In the shine of your costume
I see your laughter
Close to the heart
Is that one gift
From the lover

The symbol of my love
You carry on your forehead
Who says in heavens
Strangers shall not
Know each other

    Eternal lovers
    wearing a mask of strangers
    descended from the sky
    So to chase again each other
    and become a love messengers (Report) Reply

    strangers we,
    are no more
    My forehead
    now carries
    the symbol
    of your love
    the heavens
    stand witness,
    of the spells
    that depart
    from your pen
    drenched in
    the ink of your love
    on the slate of my destiny
