Don't give up on us


it is no open secret
that i live to recite the clause
of our stolen sight,
an adversary behaviour that
seeks to kill my love for you
with this distance of dessonance,
Angel! you are my angel,

I know it is difficult,
but distance is just a measurement,
whose units are elements of trust,
just and just loyalty never busts,
and within the small world of our relationship,
are two little birds in different places,

their hearts have stolen faces,
and their puzzled minds,
are fed all stormy miseries,
but love for each other,
rules inside their ears,
with small voices saying:
'I know he loves me'
and goes on ' and I know she wont hurt me'

you see not everyone will adore them,
some will influence,
some will throw at them,
lies and false assumptions,
some of them will try in hardwork,
to split their hearts in two pieces,
some would rejoys their hurt,

but an amazing part is,
the sum of all those 'somes'
know not, that these two little birds,
are mates made in soul,
and thats why they will always,
love eachother
Angel! you are my ange

you are my angel,
my strenght is as the strenght of ten,
because my love for you is pure,
and thats the distance will cure,
he loves you!
she loves you
it is as clear as the sky is blue,

you see the grace of our origin,
lies not in were we are,
the grace of our origin is no mystery,
because like history,
it tells us more about were we have been
an amiable myth that doesn't decieve
only the love i know i deserve

WINE comes in at the mouth
And love comes in at the eye;
