I am not the kind of person, who usually writes of love,
We walked different paths, our destinations different
But still I write today about it, because the feeling is true,
And I write about it now, because in my life now there is you.
When I first saw you, by the riverside
I could not take my eyes of you however hard I tried,
In your eyes I saw the answer, in your smile I saw the key,
Your lips were enchanting, your face could make the blind see.
You like love are a total stranger to me,
I walk in shadows while you in light roam free,
But I now will walk the other road,
I will walk love's road,
I will do so because I know I will find you on that road,
And you mean my life to me.
My every breath bears your name,
In every face your face I see,
Every voice is engulfed by your words,
Every thought of mine is overlaid by your shadow,
The sun shines now and the river seems to glow.
I will wait a lifetime for you,
I will step into the light for you,
Our roads will meet, in that I believe
But when they meet it will be up to you,
And then it is I, who will question you,
Then will you walk away or with me afresh, anew?
