I wanted you so badly
Desire flamed in my insides.
But I asked you not to come yet;
My life still rode the tides.
Yet you came to me abruptly
One careless, loving night.
You filled my heart with joys undreamt
And flooded my eyes with light.
You were smaller than a fingernail
When you chose to go away.
Why did you stay so briefly?
Why did you leave that day?
You broke my heart in two, you know.
The tears, you made them fall.
You knew you wouldn't stay long.
Why did you come at all?
Who were you, little Sweetheart?
You know I love you still.
Where did you go? Where are you now?
What dreams will you fulfill?
You touched my soul and helped me grow,
Hard though that is to see.
Someday when I am ready
Will you come back to me?
