Movement of the heart

There is a movement in my heart

Murmuring your name

I smile

A tear dries

Time is a good friend

A good friend

My dear

My love

My everything

 

Weathering storms

Pulsating in memories

Leaving me helpless

Weak at the knees

For you

But then

A salty rain

Washes us way

Erasing an us

That could never be

 

Wounded not broken

 

I move with the tide

Catching my breath

Standing as I breathe

As I heal

Moving forward

I won’t turn back

 

My mind

Fixed on tomorrow

Just in case it comes

I am hoping it does

It will

If it doesn’t

At least

I had yesterday

At least

 

I had you

(Lyrics, not my words)

Now that you’re settled
Comes a knock at the door
Wind’s rattling something
That never rattled before
What have we if not promises?
The excitement of the road too gets old

Something has changed in me
Changed again
Something has changed in me
And here I go
On the road again
Seeking another storm
Just when I think I’ve got it right
I hear the laughter of life
Something has changed

How many times we’ve pledged forever
Gone overnight like the weather
Magic days of childhood I took for granted
Now I see were held together by a thread

Something has changed in me
Changed again
Something has changed in me
And here I am
On the run again
Seeking another storm
Just when I think I’ve got it right
I hear the laughter of life

How many times can a person begin again?
The road getting stranger with every turn
Nature flaunting her beauty and indifference
Smears away our love with a smile
Something has changed
