I asked god for a rose & he gave me a garden. i ask god for a drop of water & he gave me an ocean. i asked god for an angel & he gave me you! one day you ask me: what's more important to you, me or your life? i'll say my life and you'll go and leave without even knowing that you are my life. my eyes are hurting because i can't see you. my arms are empty because i can't hold you. my lips are cold because i can't kiss you. my heart is breaking because i'm not with you.
I went to bed last night with a vision of you next to me. I slept like a baby all night, because I was not feeling alone. When I awoke this morning to see if it was real or if it was a dream, realty hit me that it was only a dream. Very soon, I know that you will be right next me, and that I will not have to dream of it again because you will be right there so we can hold, hug and squeeze each other tight. Baby, I long to be there with you so I can help build you and support you, so that we can accomplish a whole lot together as husband and wife.
My darling, I'm waiting for you.How long is a day in the dark?Or a week?The fire is gone now,and I'm horribly cold.I really ought to drag myself outside,but then there'd be the sun.I'm afraid I waste the lighton the paintings and on writing these words.We die.We die rich with lovers and tribes,tastes we have swallowed,bodys we have entered…and swum up like rivers.and swum up like rivers.Fears we've hidden in,like this wreched cave.I want all this marked on my body.We are the real countries.Not the boundaries drawn on maps,the names of powerful men.I know you'll come and carry me out into the palace of winds.That's all I've wanted,to walk in such a place with you,with friendsan earth without maps.The lamp's gone out,and I'm writing…in the darkness.
