Secret Love














There you were waiting beneath the tree
And I observing you, on the sly
As the time slowly crawls by....

How I wish I was that gust of wind
caressing your hair
while u slept without any care

I wish I was that rain drop
Flowing from your forehead gently
Stealthily stopping on your lip

What wouldnt I give to be that bag
slinging on your arm all day
never forgotten, never left astray

I wish I was that moon beam
Making love to you; agleam
While you sleep..in dream

I can see your profile
Classic face with bohemian hairstyle,
Oh you have me beguiled!

But I guess its time to stop dreaming, to go
She's here , your love
Radiant in happiness, aglow

My love was destined to fail
The ship drowned before it sails
Like the autumn leaves on the trail

Secret, stolen memories
Long forgotten auguries
It will remain in some nook
Of my heart
Like a flattened rose
In an long forgotten book
