Treasure Island

Love


In the voice of the wind.
My heart calls-
but the only answer it hears
is my own...

How did I come to love one-
who never can love back?
How did I give another such right-
To break my spirit,
and tear up my soul?

Help me Jesus,
for I'm sinking fast...
Please give me an answer-
As my heart can't grasp the pain-
that's inflicted.
And the depth of it all...

Everytime I whisper to the wind-
To return
My Love,
to me....

Would I ever be worthy-
To know such joy?
Can laughter ever greet my ears?
Or only tears fill my eyes?

Is it ever possible,
That one...
Somewhere...
Could....
Ever love 'Me'?
