I madly fell in love With your bright smile, Your seducing stares, Your soothing and soft voice And more than anything else, I went totally crazy for your Unique walking style!
I spoke to you many times But you listened with empty ears And clearly rejected me, I built a sweet dream around You and my burning desires!
Time passed by like water Running through my fingers Or like a river’s stream With no destination set And I became so obsessed!
You were like an only picture Hanging on a black wall And my eyes glued to you When I have to leave sadly Before the arrival of the sundown, An agony without an end, You remained just a friend!
