Tears on a waterfall
Like the early morning dew
Cleansing my soul making it anew
Purifying my thoughts freeing my mind
Slowly turning back the hands of time
Back to the time when you were mine
Patience is a virtue or so I've been told
What I would give your hand to hold
Poor judgement on my part
Tore an unhealing hole in your heart
True love only happens once in a lifetime
How stupid of me because I lost mine
No one could touch my being like you
Who could look in my eyes and make me feel new
You set my skin on fire
>From your touch and sheer desire
Your wisdom beyond years is what I admired
You say past the persona and shields
The meaning of inner beauty you made me feel
You were the first to take to the mountain top
I saw it coming but you didn't stop
I didn't know mountains could feel like this
To see all of the valleys and bliss
All of this started with that first kiss
One day again we shall meet
Love like this always finds a way
Maybe not tomorrow but another day
In these arms you will find
The only thing between us is time
