Can I Have You? - Poem by Maia Padua

Dreams falling like beads from heaven
Scattered like dew carpeting the meadow
Waiting for a new dawn to kiss goodbye
Echoes heard from a lonely mountain
The deafening truth, hurting vain.

Love is gone?
Love slowly fades away?
Those lovely eyes, soothing looks
Those inviting lips, sweet smiles
Vanish like rainbow in the sky
Vanish like fog as fire slowly dies.

Are my tears not enough to melt your heart?
Are my prayers not enough to be heard by God?
When will these tears stop from falling?
When will be my prayers be answered?
Until, there will be no more tears to cry?
Or, until my weeping heart slowly dies?

Will I go on chasing rainbows in the sky?
Will there be an end of the lonely echoes of my heart's cry?
Will I ever learn to live with it?
Will I ever learn to live without you?

So many questions were made
So many questions remain unanswered
When my heart only ask for one;
'Can I have you in my life? '

Dedicated to my friend...Macel S.
