For me

for me
I came home tired
You can tell from the slump of my shoulders
You told me to sit and don’t bother to cook
As I was dozing off
I felt you lift my leg and warm lotion covered my skin
You massaged my feet when I know your ankle is hurting
I thanked you because it felt so good and I felt better
You said you didn’t do it for me
I smiled and felt even better.

In re: Gibran on Love

twilight
i submit myself to love’s threshing floor
and i am yours to knead as you please
i bleed willingly and joyfully for you
and i wake at dawn everyday
feeling the misery of being without you
but i give thanks for another day
of being able to love you
in the middle of the day i pause
and think of you
and meditate on your love’s ecstasy
when i lay down to sleep
it is your name that I silently whisper into the night
you are my heart

When Autumn Leaves Start to Fall

Because it rained when I loved you
and I have swam in the oceans of your love
but I’ll never watch the leaves fall with you…
 

AUTUMN LEAVES
The falling leaves drift by my window
The falling leaves of red and gold
I see your lips the summer kisses
The sunburned hands I used to hold

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Since you went away the days grow long
And soon I’ll hear old winter’s song
But I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

I miss you most of all my darling
When autumn leaves start to fall

Some days you just have to misplace your mistakes

Sometimes, you walk by the good ones
Cause you’re trying too hard, too hard to see them
And sometimes, you don’t find the right lines
‘Cause your trying, too hard, too hard to hear them
But you know what it feels like
‘Cause you’re like me
And you won’t give up

Chorus
Till an all time love
‘Cause nothing else is good enough
I want an all time love
To find me…
Oh…

Some days, you’re too set in your ways
And you forget to shut up, shut up and listen
And some days you just have
To misplace all your mistakes
Somewhere that you won’t miss them
So stop lying that you’re fine, cause you’re like me
And you can’t give up

Chorus

I don’t believe that it’s a failure
I don’t believe that it’s a fault
‘Cause if everything were plain sailing
Oh tell me – what would there be left to exalt

But an all time love
‘Cause nothing else, is good enough
I want an all time love
To find me

I want an all time love
‘Cause nothing else, is good enough
I want an all time love
To find me…

ALL TIME LOVE by Will Young
