Love's course is like a mountain stream,
in that it comes in many guises.
For it's twists and turns its depth and strength,
it flows in many sizes.
Please look inside your heart next time,
don't just see your own reflection.
As every choice you choose in life,
like your mirror it has it's own imperfection.
The words I write of you on paper,
can not portray true feelings for you.
You're a song that's caught inside my head,
a tune repeating I can't renew.
My sleeps are a recurring nightmare,
of black dogs streaking across the sky.
Tearing gashes amongst the night time wonders,
as I stare lonely upwards and wonder why.
In my eyes there is no vision,
but the sight of your sweet face.
In my heart there's only feelings,
for the warmth of your embrace.
Without you sweetheart I'd surely die,
you lift my life by being you.
It's not just that you are beautiful'
but your strength and caring too.
Just once in a lifetime,
you find someone among few.
Slowly your lives intermingle,
and somehow you just knew.
In my heart I'm the captain of an unsteady ship,
and it's your safe port it's that I am seeking.
High water or wind won't dampen nor impede these sails,
till you're in my arms for my own keeping.
I can see you in sunshine bright'
it's rays warming earth and sky.
I can see you in butterflies wings,
as they glide and flutter by.
