ANGELITA.

Tonight, the wind will whisper,
the trees will sigh,
but this lamp i have lit for you,
will never be doused.

Tonight, the stars will gaze,
the rivers will murmur,
and the moon will come out of her hiding,
but this lamp i have lit for you,
will never be extinguished.

Tonight, in this fiery blue darkness,
my eyes await you.
my ears ache for your footfalls.

Tonight, in this very lamp i have lit for you,
i burn.
i burn.
i burn in every pore.

    yeah, everything else cease to exist when waiting for love.it's appearance induces another ache for more and re-ignites the fire but it's failure to respond will result in the desire burning into ashes.sweet and romantic
