Hej Lilly! I would like to know you
You would be beautiful and smart
What magic for you to arrive and to see you grow
I would love you (and your mother) with all my heart
It might not be too long before you are here.
I dream of our family,
What happiness we would share,
You would be my best thing, Lilly.
I will be so proud of you.
I will do my best, I promise,
Try to be your best father and pursue
All that is best, to be courageous and honest.
I can't help hoping…; I think my heart's breaking
"Good girl, do your best", I would have said.
In my dreams
I am free as a madman
And I can be tricked by my dreams
Into believing we are not apart
I treasure my memories of you
Like reading poetry and watching you paint
Or the best sex ever made me nearly faint
I sit and wait, trying to grasp
The future rushing towards me
Like blurred images through
The windows of a train.
Lead me through the iron gate.
Gently part the thornbush climbing there.
Take my hand and pull me to my fate.
I cannot resist, I never could
