What to do about Love, when your Head is so full of thoughts ;
Your Heart beating in a rapid beat,
Your Eyes searching the horizon - have you possibly caught
A glimpse of your beloved One in the street ?
How can you manage this Feeling, when your Head is so full of it –
Why should you extinguish it all, while your Senses long for the other?
Is it not the most Prudent way to let it happen, bit by bit
In Patience and sincerety , like a caring Mother ...
And when we walk together – a Promise that we made
Might trouble us sometimes , in feeling at a Loss -
For the Words we want to say , already slowly fade
In Silence , and in Hope that again we will come across ...
Where-ever you are , you will always be in my Mind ;
I will hear your Voice in my Ears – telling me about your Longing
To come Home again ; in our Surroundings, mild and kind –
But remember : our Birds of Love will always keep singing ...
