Somewhere within your loving look I sense,
Without the least intention to deceive,
Without suspicion, without evidence,
Somewhere within your heart the heart to leave.

    This is almost the destiny you talk about when your sixth, seventh or above sense makes you feel the steps of tardily wanning love.A cycle of Nature is completed. (Report) Reply
