My Listless Other Soul (Lyrics For Music) - Poem by Edmund Calleja

(And let it be said that love is like a river
that flows deep into the heart of the soul) .


I was looking for some light
In reborn dreams of my seclusion,
In this dark and starless night
Where everything was an illusion.

Come and take my hand
Why are you leaving?
I thought you’d be my friend
I thought you’d sooth my grieving.

Loving you was like growing
In a garden full of flowers,
Where my Love for you was flowing
Amid the spring and autumn showers.

When you were here with me
Everything was an emotion,
It wasn’t me who set you free
To fly across a distant ocean.

I yearned to fly with you
But I lost my angel wings,
Is this then our sad adieu
Is it time for broken rings?

Come back to me and let me fly
Beside your heartless cruel flight,
Come back to me and let me try
To set my other Soul alight.

You were my perfect love
Why are you deserting me now?
You were given me from above
And your love you won’t allow?

You overwhelmed me with those
Imagined fiery kisses,
You were the only one I chose
From all my endless lovers’ misses.

Come back to me and let me fly
Beside your heartless cruel flight,
Come back to me and let me try
To set my other Soul alight.
