To behold the rainbow after the rain
That connects the earth to the sky
Down to the earth again.
To where the eagles fly.
I , at one end of the rainbow
You at the other end to me , bow ,
To each other across the sky
Our imaginations fly
Reaching out , calling out to each other
From shore to shore from earth to sky
Like the rainbow in the sky ;
Like the the morning birds that cry ,
I long to be where you are , to be near you .
To be your necklace coloured blue .
Just to be by your side .
With you I abide .
Some times in my dreams I roamed
From the darkness of my room
I flew to places
We used to frequent
There are so many
The gardens , the lakes , the sea and the crowded streets .
And I relived again scenes of our meetings so sweet.
Your look , your touch , your smile
All I savoured lingeringly for a while
Can love be that great
Can dreams be such a treat ?
Then I awoke only to find myself alone
Where have you gone ?
Dream of my dreams
My illusive moon beams
My nightingale that sings songs of sorrow
Will I see you tomorrow?
My angel , in my despair
When love and feelings flare .
And flee , gone , from this lonely quarter
Like a barren desert that yearns for drops of water.
I dip my thirsty tongue in some photos
of you that you left behind .
To quench my thirst , I sometimes reach for the phone
You are at the other end
To you I say hello , love
I revive when I hear your voice .
Time flies by
So quick , oh so quick !
When will I see you again ?
Moon , hide your light
Come out only when my love is back
For to be here when he's not around ,
would be a waste , a waste of your light.
I may take flight ,
And retire to my lonely room .
And shut your moonlight out .
Love is a sacred song
Some love forlorn
Some so strong .
Let's not prolong
We have loved so long.
To each other we belong .
Together we mingle with the throng .
