A message from across the pond
It felt like Christmas
on that late September night
in the airport waiting anxiously
for you to step off the plane.
I'm still recalling
that first time I saw your face
and all the things you ever said,
they still fill me full of life.
And I wonder why,
as I close my eyes to sleep, I still
feel happy, though our love is
forced to wait.
So I say your name
out loud for all the stars to hear
and for the wind to whisper to you,
everything will be alright.
And I hear your voice
in the morning rays of sunshine
breaking through the night storm
giving me courage
to face another day
of being parted, having to hold
our hearts at bay until the time
our promises are made
