My Cause of Heartache
I'm embraced by a mist of gentle rain
while my sad heart clings to a whit of hope
that some day you will love me, once again,
or I'd dare not wonder how I should cope.
Your letter's still sealed in its envelope.
My cold fingers fumble, quiver and shake,
hands tremble to open and my lips quake.
I fear to read in your words, what I dread
that would be the cause for my heart to ache.
With scarcely a breath, your message I read...
"Today I heard a song and thought of you.
Truth is, you've been on my mind for a while.
When I heard the lyrics to 'Misty Blue,'
I closed my eyes; on my lips was a smile.
I don't have your number, so couldn't dial,
but I'd like to see you, if that's okay.
I never stopped loving you, by the way.
If your heart will give me a second chance,
I'll come to you, darling, without delay,
to stoke the embers of love and romance."
