Let me sing you a ballad –
Of a room full of people and colours,
High pitched laughter and chaos,
And eyes that wandered
Back to the gallant fella.
All the tiring isolations of frustration,
The seamless giggles of nervousness,
And even a heart I once stole
Remain a secret well hidden;
But all these feelings for you, I just can’t hide.
The smile upon the winter sun,
The smile in the the drive on the open road,
The flutter of leaves with morning dew;
All I’ve known but not this smile of ecstasy
And a fluttering heart for eternal love.
Delving into the idle dreams of lowly days,
Finding silence in our aimless melody,
Those frowns wiped off by coy smiles,
Tripping over the quite obvious
Truth – with you is life’s unfathomable bliss.
Like the sunshine over the pure white snow,
I find my sweet escape in your tight embrace,
My fears melt away while you kiss me slow,
But I’ve to innocently ask you once again,
Yours, can I be forever hence?
