for the woman…

Heart’s been numb for long

For a while, it didn’t smile

Have been walking alone

A long lonely mile

 

Trenchant eyes searching

Joy that promise to stay

Not lure me for a while

Than just wither away

 

I walked on the street

Greyness in my eyes

Not a sight to excite

Burden of being wise

 

Birds on my window

Stopped singing long ago

Deadness of my soul

Hindered their flow

 

Then you came along

Turned things around

I could see the beauty

I could hear the sound

 

I got my pulse back

I felt the beat again

Life’s still the same

Yet, no longer is vain

 

You gave a meaning to life

You gave the reason to be

So trust me when I say this

You mean everything to me

 

- the man
