Never Was My Word - Poem by Leonard Webber

Never was my word
Never shall I hang up the jersey and quit the game
Never shall I unlock the padlock that clinched my heart
And allow any soul to build a little hut in it
Never shall I be swept up by one's strength of one's arm
Never shall I allow any unique beauty to cross my mind
And reside in the warmth of my heart
Never shall my arms be a home to any kind of mighty precious jewel
Never shall I let gravity of love pull me
Into the loop of heart aches and dwell in pain

Never was my word
Never shall I say never, never again
Never was eradicated when I set my jersey to flames
And when I was red carded permanently from the game
Never was erased with a master key that unlocked the padlock of my heart
And when she melted me and form a new me
Never was eradicated by the tunes from her voice
Her words from her songs and the passion displayed
By her finger stroking the guitar of my chest
Never was erased when I buried my hand in her hairs
And locked my tongue with hers blowing sound of love
Never was eradicated when my fears were at rest
And when I experiencing the true colour of love
If dove truly resembles peace I don't doubt even a bit
That if she doesn't resembles love
Then she is a goddess of love

Never was my word
Never shall I say never, never again
But I say never when I say never shall I live you
Never shall I love another unless if this other is you
Never shall I leave your emotions high to dry
Never shall I let the sky pour on you
And if you had wings to fly,
I'll build thousand stations for you to perch
On the branches of arms
And if you were a spider
I'll net you a web and watch you ascend to great height
Never shall I say never but only when I say I will never leave you
