For I Will Love You


For I Will Love You

Listen to the ancient voices

Calling from the dark

Only heard by your heart

And answered by your whispers

The heart remembers

The heart endures

Deep it lies

In the tide of dreams

There it ever shall remain

The silent messenger

Of secrets infinite

Brings the sound alive once more

When I call, can you hear my voice?

Listen, my love, hear me

Like the misplaced words

Of some forgotten song

Breathe the scent of evening flowers

Listen for my heartbeat

For you alone

Listen for my footsteps

Just a breath away

And speak to me

In whispers soft

Of midnight hue

The echoes of unspoken words

Are ever longed for

Haunting every violet night

You are not alone

For I will love you, nevertheless
