AMORIO PERDIDO


**Listening to a friend of mine speak of the experience of falling in love with someone while they were both separated from their spouses, and how she fantasized about him, led me to this write.**

(LOST LOVE)

Don't know why as time goes by
my thoughts still turn to you
Though I try my mind still sighs
with each dream I feel blue

You were not mine, yet souls entwined
though each was bound to a vow
With just a sign, small or benign
I'd give that up somehow

My longing heart is torn apart
I should not feel this way
Right from the start desire, a dart
found its mark without delay

Why do I wish to feel your kiss
when to someone else I belong?
I felt such bliss your arms I miss
although I know that it's wrong

And though I pray for strength each day
in sleep it's you I see
My mind replays your teasing ways
how you brought out the best in me

We laughed, we cried and always tried
to share what we wanted to hide
Opened up inside you were my guide
back to the girl who had somehow died

You've been my muse if I could choose
I'd take you by the hand
Our bodies fused in greed we'd lose
our passions on the sand

That fantasy just couldn't be
not ready, you backed away
The memory of her, you see
made you keep desire at bay

Now alas, it's done our time in the sun
was finished all too soon
My heart you'd won but you turned to run
like the clouds across the moon

You will ever be a part of me
no matter in joy or strife
Sweet memories of you and me
will be with me all of my life
