»Lily«

by Fortunate-Hero Lekgetho, February 28, 2011

My chick
she is like a lily in bloom
when she walks inside a room
I feel this feeling inside
nothing but love for her

My chick
she is my compass
the only true north close enough
should I miss the land so dry
and my boat sails astray
cause of tyrant winds and tides
so cruel

I will follow the light
cause like the lighthouse
her love will lead me home
her love will lead me to safety

And should I in a forest
declare
among all the men so gay
that somehow my boulevard
I have lost
towards the northern star I shall
walk
like a bird towards its nest
it shall lead me back to you
it shall lead me to safety

to love someone at times / gives you so much grief at times / you run to show them much love / and they complain about the past / you fight for the present / but they dwell on yesterdays mistakes / / to love someone sometimes / you try by all means not to hurt them / but they hurt you instead / and they  sign in to read more »
