The Shadow Of Love


I see the shadow of love
When you are passing by
My heart is environed by romance
And I wander like a house fly

I try to give it all
But I don’t get it back
For all I see is a shadow
Meaning I’m out of luck

I enjoy having you in my reverie
But once I wake up it’s a different story
For I get back to solitary times
Where wind whispers to me the word ‘sorry’

Now it’s time for you to give me a chance
Just a moment for me to take a try
I’ll let my words echo in the heavens
And with tears of love I’ll cry

I won’t allow anyone to disturb me
And for what I want I’ll stand and it’s true
For Romeo love Juliet
In the same way I love you

Now here is my challenge
To get lid of the shadow view
By giving you nothing but love
So I can be in love with you.
