The Girl
The girl behind the smile,
the eyes beneath the glance,
the kiss which overwhelms me
the moment we take our chance
The touch which draws me nearer
to a heart forged out of flame,
an embrace of deep dimensions
so deep, I forget my name
And think of hers, yes, only hers,
it’s the song which shaped my soul,
and I let it draw me close, so close,
this splintered heart is mended, whole.
