As you came to me in a peninsula of a forest;
In the mid of the night;
With a look and kiss as you were flashing in my life
I knew that you were the one though it hurt a
Good bit of the time
That was for me so long ago.
Oh Lover boy, I knew so well,
are you waiting at my door?
Whispering where are you my love?
My heart beating so that the whole world could hear,
Anticipating and longing for your touch;
Your hand comes through the door reaching for me,
As I open the door wanting and longing for your kiss.
Your arms encircle me and pull me to you
And our lips meet
In such an explosion of feeling and emotions
That we did not know we had.
The river of love and lust together so sweet and full filling,
That when we fall so deep into each other
That it is with such a force that we delve so deep within
Onto the bed and we lay and look and touch and kiss
Not quite getting enough of each other.
That’s how I remember you so full of love.
I do love you and I am so longing for our time.
From so long ago; How long was I supposed to wait I say?
It was the slow night with anticipation
You were like fire color fire of the night and lightening I knew.
Wheels turned behind your blue eyes
The two of us fit well together in the mare of life
As you grabbed me by my waist and pressed my face to your back.
The smell of you made me swell
Midmorning rolled around and there you were saying
‘Imagine love’ you said ‘where there were no boundaries’
‘To love the night away;’
Then the day I went away was like a fire in my soul
Oh my love, forgive me I say. Let me know I pray
That it was a long time ago. That we may be free;
We beat down the gravel road in dust. To find our perfect spot
The woods spell our words of time
The true spot you know the place so well
The feeling of joy comes so fast
It is a far deeper of feelings to be
The despair may flood higher
As a comet comes blazing across my heart
I sit still blinded.
As it was a long time ago.
