It Is Time

It’s a long long time...of unbearable waiting and piercing sorrow,                       It’s a long long way...of painful journey and overwhelming grief,               We went near and far,                                            we came so close and apart -                  It's amazing, how strong our bond has turned,                                             No tempestuous storm can destroy our tranquil nest,                                                                   it’s a time ~ for us!                                      As if nothing has been lost,                                                                         As if nothing had been stolen,                             You are the same doting soul,                               I am the same ardent mind,     Time to heal, Beloved, no more crushing separation, no more suffering agony -     No one can crudely rip the petals of the Red Rose with glowing hues,                                                          It’s a time ~ for us!                      You thought, I was immensely blissful, and content,                                                 I thought, you were truly joyful, and merry,                                               A vast unfathomable mighty ocean separated us                                                     From joining our fervent hands together -                             Believe me, my love, not the most powerful wave can wash away our treasured castle,                                                                                     It’s a time ~ for us!                    At last two beating hearts belong, finally to each other,                                       At last two turbulent souls rest, leaning on each other,                     Nobody can take away the coveted peace, which was cruelly denied to two young spirits -                                                                         A celestial dove carried it to us,                                                             No more holding back ~ it’s a time for us ~ At last!
