About the Poem
I'm a romantic soul, living in Belgium. Love has been my part in the past, and now the Internet (ICQ) has brought it back. Still wondering how.
Suddenly she was there, right before me on the screen. Living in another part of the world and yet so close. We called ourselves 'online- friends', then 'online' was left away, and now the impossibility itself happened.
As Long As You Are
|Can't count the miles,
you're away from me.
Can't count the moments,
you're so close to me.
Never thought my heart would sound this beat,
but heart and thoughts were incomplete :
. . . You were not there.
How can this be wrong ?
This feeling deep inside, so strong.
In God's hands, we will share our heart.
It never ends, over and over again, a new start.
Never knew life could be so tender . . .
To this life, to this love, to you, I surrender . . .
. . . Now that you are there.
Heart and soul
body and mind
silence and sound
to you I send it all
sweet and kind
with love all around
Never thought I could feel this way, this way
loved, blessed and sheltered
loving, blessing and sheltering,
day after day after day,
. . . As long as you are there
