And I Would Have

And I would have wished for the moon and the stars,
to brightly shine upon the night sky,
showing you the road that leads back to me,
back to my hearth, my home, my arms tonight.

And I would have wished for the sun to bathe us warm,
as we stir beneath the sheets from the deepest of sleeps,
arms enfolding one against the other,
like true lovers, souls entwined.

And I would have wished to open my eyes and see yours,
gazing at me with such love that you can bear,
while our hearts beat the same rhythm in our chests,
a tempo that we are already used to.

And I would have wished that time be on our side,
stopping still while our hearts unite,
merging souls encased in passion,
until all we ever wanted has finally happened.

And I would have wished that we can stay like this forever,
your hands in mine and mine in yours,
sealed with a promise to never let go,
whatever happens I’ll be forever yours.

And I would have wished that no tears will fall,
from eyes that once perceived love divine,
and yet they come without warning, unrelenting,
falling down in careless rivulets.

And I would have wished that you stay longer,
to hold me close one last time,
wipe away the tears that fell from brooding eyes,
and kiss my lips before you say goodbye.

Forget it.
Forget the dreams.
Forget the promises.
Forget the sweet nothings.
Forget the embraces.
Forget the messages.
Forget the moments.
Forget the kisses.
Forget us.
Forget me.

If I will write the story of us, where should I begin?
Should I start when our paths first crossed,
or should I fast forward to where we are now?
Should I write about the plans we made,
the dreams we shared,
when now they’ve all been but erased?

Where to begin the story of us?
When all I can see is the coming of the end?
The paths we once walked are no longer the same,
we’ve changed, we’ve ceased to care.

What else is there to write about?
When all the thoughts we had
had all been erased?
Would our story ever continue
even when the world conspires against us?

Will there even be a story of us,
one that we could write together?
Or shall we let this story fade,
let time works its way,
until all that was has been completely erased?

So many lines remain unspoken,
can’t find the right words to say.
You’re always leaving me behind,
never thinking twice,
just letting your feet take you
away from me.

Where have all the words gone?
Trying to patch things up.
Just me and my mind tonight,
finding the words I know I’ve left buried
somewhere in the depths of this mind.

Just hear me out one last time,
and then you can go your way.
Leave me if you want to,
I won’t ask you to stay.
But won’t you wait for me
to untangle these unspoken words
I’ve yet to say?

I’ll never find another you,
even as the world keeps on turning.
There is no one else like you,
of that I am really sure.
You are the only one I know
who can find a smile inside of me.

And though I love you with all that I have,
there are still words that haven’t crossed my lips.
Because you never gave me any chance
to show you how I can love with all that I have.

Because you always keep yourself in the dark,
never letting my light shine through.
You thought it was better to leave me alone,
not knowing that your killing me inside.
How can these unspoken words
ever find their way to you?
When all I ever do is keep on chasing after you?

Won’t you stop and stay for the meantime?
Let me love you even just for a little while.
I’ll let loose these unspoken words
so they can flow and never stop.
Let them tell you how I see the world,
now that I’ve found what I was looking for.

It was always you who made my days better,
even when all I ever wanted was to drown
in my own dark despair.
The words have caught up with me now,
can’t hold back the tide.
I’ll love you forever more,
if only you’ll allow me to.

There won’t be any words left unspoken,
if you choose to stay by my side.
Just stay with me and never leave,
let’s not end it this way.
Let’s speak those words we’ve left unspoken,
and do away with the secrets, lies and silence.

You’ve put me on the sidelines,
never letting me enter your dreams.
I’m just a chance passenger waiting
for a space in your heart to squeeze in,
just a little hole is enough for me,
so I can get closer to your heart
and make a home there for me.
You’ve put me aside so easily,
putting distance between you and me,
yet I’m a fool who is still waiting,
that you’ll come back to me.
