I Cry...


I cry in stillness of my heart
Thought peace within i have found
But tears of pain befall me.

I cry in joyful song of bitterness
Have been bewitched by humility
And by the kindness in your eyes.

I cry and dance in festive tears
have been enraptured in love
Lost in your calm and gentle nature.

I cry for the love i conceive for you
Has grown in my heart like white snow
But your heart lies far from my reach.

I cry in sorrows, my heart is cold thought
i would be the one whose heart you will hold
Can't say goodbye, your soft and tender tone
Still lingers deep in my heart.

I cry and wait, sitting at the corner of the
street that this love will grow in your heart
too in days, weeks, months, years.
I cry, I cry and I cry...



I cry in stillness of my heart
Thought peace within i have found
But tears of pain befall me.

I cry in joyful song of bitterness
Have been bewitched by humility
And by the kindness in your eyes.

I cry and dance in festive tears

Lost in your calm and gentle nature.

I cry for the love i conceive for you
Has grown in my heart like white snow
But your heart lies far from my reach.

I cry in sorrows, my heart is cold thought
i would be the one whose heart you will hold
Can't say goodbye, your soft and tender tone
Still lingers deep in my heart.

I cry and wait, sitting at the corner of the 
street that this love will grow in your heart 
too in days, weeks, months, years.
I cry, I cry and I cry...

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
