Lovers Apart

Written by: Brandon Basson

A love as sweet as the promise of heaven
Imperiled destruction as never been seen
Like the ever present fear of Armageddon
Full blossomed to explode with feelings pristine

Would you be willing to accept this fate?
Or endure the longing forever postponed
And wait in line at the pearliest gates
Where angst expectations are accident proned 

Everyone lives for the eye blinding glance
That causes the heart uncontrollable swells
But it’s hard to trust the potions of chance
That could cure the being of thirst quenching spells

In having to alter the passage of will
The curse and the worry of dying alone
Is broken assuring the outcome fulfills
The heart of the lover who braves the unknown

I’d forfeit heaven for the woman I love
If it meant that she could take my place
The earth and its stars way up above
Amazing together and never a waste

Conditioned you stay just a little bit longer
And shelter these words within your heart
I love you for loving me deeper and stronger
On heaven bound chariots set to depart
