WAR WITHIN

WAR WITHIN 

In this could hateful word
you see many things
but nothing is like those sad darken dreams
it is a war within my mind 
that keeps me on the edge most of the time
the air is ferfumed in witch craft
where battle cries of the night 
plays evil games on the mind ,

the sun can get very warm when its out
oh, how it can melt deep within the heart of humans
where life of spring flowers and roots are blumed
while war is going on
a new sad song is bowing 
in that cold autumn wind
where my mind is still dancing around with you
where love was always true until I lost you,

those memories are so sweet 
until I started having bad dreams
where words of hast always come my way
in that old ancient wind crying to me again
where leaves flutter and dance upon the trees 
until they finely fall
my heart is weathered
where life is colder without you in it,

But when those memories of you come back to me
I can still see us dancing in that summers breeze
I keep holding on to you
while you sing to me 
Oh, how it cut me deep to see you leave
when I had to let you go
I miss you 
I love you 
But now I don't know what else there is for me to do,

I try so hard to move along in life
even when I found someone new 
I could never compare him to you
I'm still dancing with you
even though you are long gone 
the love we shared is still very strong
playing on in my heart and on my mind
most of the time 
this will always be apart of my life,

I know I could never love another like I loved you
If love is as powerful as this 
how can this old world be so darken like it is?
how could anyone plant a garden without its love?
Oh, my love I will always love you.
