2 – PAGES

Tear stained pages
Red wine, gypsy bands
Happiness, holding hands
Quiet streets
Your kiss, sleepless nights
Solitude, lonely plights
Oriental perfumes
Filling all the rooms
Another door is opening…

I’ve been pressed between the pages
Of a book that I have written
The words are all my own
Won’t erase a single trace
Caught between the lines
The phrases wrap themselves
Around me, around me

Loved ones leaving
Never more to see
But always here with me
Carefree laughter
I am your queen
You are my king
Candlelight at breakfast
Starlings taking wing
Another door is opening

I’ve been pressed between the pages
Of a book that I have written
The words are all my own
Won’t erase a single trace
Caught between the lines
The phrases wrap themselves
Around me, around me
Tear stained pages

Red wine, gypsy bands,
Happiness, holding hands
Quiet streets
Your kiss, sleepless nights
Solitude, lonely plights
Oriental perfumes
Filling all the rooms
Another door is opening…
