from the very first day i saw you after a long time,
i mean…. really see you and you were alone
i have longed to touch your face
gently, smoothly, like angels’ ways
i can’t explain why i was so drawn to you
when i thought that you have become a stranger.
maybe it was my longing…
for the familiar chaotic calmness
that we had when we were young
how i missed the way you give my face a caress
i never wanted anyone to do something like that
so in my mind, i tried to convince or to explain
how gently i want to touch your face….
and kiss you in the rain.
i’ve never been a touchy person
i was more detached
i somehow forgot
how years without you changed me
for whatever it is worth, for whatever reason
if only i could feel your face,
and lose all inhibitions.
surprisingly it felt like the most natural thing
for us to hug each other tight
the familiar embrace that i yearn for every night.
like magic, i imagine your arms around me
even if we were apart… that feeling gave me a fright.
it felt real… that very much i could say
wherever you are… there has got to be a way
the magic that we shared before is more than enough
to make me believe in life’s precious miracles
that somehow, someway…
someday, things won’t be so tough.
and that soon, i would touch your face,
and feel your sweet embrace
day and night…
you would wrap me in your arms tight.
when that day comes, we would be in pure bliss
contented, happy and be really at peace.
i want to keep you forever in my life…
i wanted to be one then… and i still do
let me be your wife…
because I never stopped loving you.
just the thought that we would have each other
to cry with, to hold, and to care
is enough for me to go on forever.
i never stopped believing
that someday, that day will come to us
let’s take it slow… let us learn to trust
our hearts, our minds… and let time
bring us with our souls together.
where our face would be closer
enough to for us to taste…
and for me to touch your face.
