It's Been...Too Long, A Wait For Me


If you want romance,
Is there still a chance...
You could slip away,
From your quick and grab it habits...
And be fully medicated.

If you want romance,
Is there still a chance...
You could slip away,
From your quick and grab it habits...
And be fully medicated.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

I feel I should grab to have it.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

I feel I should grab to have it.

If you want romance,
Is there still a chance...
You could slip away,
From your quick and grab it habits...
And be fully medicated.

It's been...
Too long a wait for me.

Do I stand a chance?

It's been...
Too long,
A wait from me.

Could there be romance,
To have our hearts continue dancing?

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.
And my heart is mended now,
With no sorrows that I borrow.
Or drag in to meet tomorrow.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

With no sorrows that I borrow.
And a heart that's mended now.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

With no sorrows that I borrow.
And a heart that's mended now.

It's been...
Too long,
A wait for me.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
