Louisville, Mississippi, USA
In This Lifetime
So many times I have wanted
To tell you what I feel inside;
But instead, I release my emotions
Through the silent tears I have cried.
If I could only tell you,
For just a second, let you see,
That in my heart I need you
As much as the air that I breathe.
If only I could show you
The visions night brings to me,
My love for you is the starlight
That brightens my every dream.
But all my hopes and wishes
I know cannot come true
For you belong to someone else,
And that someone else needs you.
So I must be strong of heart;
In this lifetime, we are not meant to be.
But I promise you, in the next, I will wait for you;
And I pray you'll wait for me.
~you reached inside, you touched my heart,
and I am all the better for it~
