As the music played so softly,
My tears you brushed away,
My heart would miss you most severe
Though I knew you could not stay.
Terror gripped me in dead of night
The thief, he came once more,
He stole my love from out my heart,
And took my very core.
The days became like night
And the night became unending,
And once again I walked behind,
The pain was unbending.
Like a shadow of myself
The days and nights will mount
And borrowed time will tick away
Until my clock, no more will count.
You were the secret of my heart
And so you will remain.
Inside my soul, tucked safely now
So none will see the pain.
I am so thankful for your gift
Your gift of love was mine alone,
Imprinted now within my heart
Like sandscrit on the stone.
I will wait until ’tis time
My hand you’ll take in joy,
Together then, at last we’ll be,
The lady and her boy.
The room now, as once before
Holds true, until we meet,
My hearts own words to keep me
Whole, though not complete.
“Until the time you come for me,
no more my heart will weep,
But do as you did bid to me,
……..and I will dance for thee”…….
