Love lost in the jungle




I met her climbing this Mountain in Borneo
Writing this, I think it was almost 3 years ago
A Dutch girl, a travelling drifter like me
Some people I guess would call it destiny
But I was just travelling through the country
I needed to get from A to B
A few days we spent together
And at night I smelt her odour like fresh heather
She was even with me on my birthday
And at night we would chat and pass the time away
We decided to go on a jungle tour
See orangutans and the wild boar
Through the jungles and rivers of Borneo
And in the jungle our love did grow
We had this guide, a local native Indian
This girl I was with seemed really smitten
One night I slept alone in our tent
She didn't come to me that night. I know where she went
I awoke to the sound of the jungle calling
And as the sun rose I knew it was morning
And still she didn't come to me
I'd love to see those people now, who call this destiny?
And as I packed my bags to head back home
I realised once again I would travel alone
I did meet her again
And she said she had a weakness for local men
I just smiled and said, “it's ok, and I understand Gwen”
But as I turned my back, I knew I'd never see her again.
