FOREVER ADELINE - Narrated by Poetry Soup Poet - SAM SCOTT

Acknowledgement: A big thank you Sam Scott from our Poetry Soup Community, for your splendid narrative contribution. Synopsis: A story of unrequited love that began in childhood. Despite the passage of time, his love remained hauntingly painful even after she fell in love with another.
Aloft on wings of rhapsody, together spirits soar Wild, untamed and sensuous, just like a lion's roar. HOW LONG AGO IT SEEMS THE TWO OF YOU FIRST MET AS TIME IS RENDERED MEANINGLESS OR TIMELESS, BETTER YET Though in that Timeless moment, along came winds of change Love swiftly rearranged, but what it WAS, remained Oh, Adeline, so fair and bright, Eyes, like stars, shine with delight, Oh fickle heart, now you await your new love's sweet embrace Blinded by the callous cad, you foolishly don't resist In the quench of love's allure, Time does not exist His loving lips will not reveal your new love's promiscuous charms Intoxicated, unrepentantly, he sways to others' wanton arms. Across the bronze Sienna shores and blissful sea breeze skies, He ever trails your hungry heart through his own saddened eyes. Oh, Adeline in Twilight's Hush, where shadows dance and play, A tale of love and longing When Night succumbs to Day Oh, Adeline, will it be mere friendship, he would fain? To be just a deliverer of love notes, a job he will disdain Oh, Adeline ~ Sweet Adeline At every glance - a secret shared, his every word - love unsaid, In every touch - a fire dared HOW LONG AGO IT SEEMS ~ THE TWO OF YOU FIRST MET AS TIME IS RENDERED MEANINGLESS OR TIMELESS, BETTER YET Chansons ne sont que chansons Quand on écrit de l'amour Comment d'écrire des chansons De la femme qui est l'amour? English translation from above: Songs are just songs When we write about love How do you write songs Of the woman who is Love? OH, ADELINE ~ SWEET ADELINE
