This Heart is like a Lion Punished through the years but still tameless facing the world and the consequences Scarred but still beating unwinking and even mended, refuses to surrender This Heart is like a lion And for a while, frozen, kept silence As if waiting for this moment Relentless, supported the action of the elements with courage Witnessed the dance of the seasons with faith And Then... A street corner near the beach A table on the sidewalk A strange Coffee Shop Innocent exchanges of words A pool table A tiny museum A unknown bookstore Wake up, brave lion Because you are no longer mine You are hers
