A Million Years

I asked the wind to steal your voice….
And sing the way you do…
I begged the wind to steal your notes…
And play the way you do..

I told the sky to steal your beauty … your confidence, Your poise.

I pleaded with the rain…
I longed for a different rhythm… I needed your hearts noise.

My tears..
in exchange I promised…
The eternal contract… 'with Love', I signed..

A million years ago…

My heart to pain…
I forever confined..

A million years ago…

I tried to rewrite it, but loves too strong..
I should of thought… before..
'with Love'.. I signed…
'It suffers long and endures all..'
To argue Love.. One's condemned to fall.

I tried…

Each breath sliced deeper.
My throat ached….
…pain, my voice rendered.
My heart fought hard, and lost the war.
All bruised and torn …..
to love, surrendered.

……..I failed.

It's been a while love,
………………….A million years.

Your voice is still my route to peace.
The wind keeps true…
And every night, it sings…
…………………… just the way you do….

It plays your notes to perfection…
Paints an image of your hands, reflection….
And every note, every key…..
Echo…
…………………….the way yours do…

It's been a while love …….
………………..a million years….

Your beauty still defines perfection….
Your confidence, your strength… till now….
Still declare protection.

The sky has kept it's word. Unbroken. A million years.
It mirrors you precisely now….. Your beauty suits it well…
Your confidence it has adopted…. Your strength, your anger…
Your perfect glare.
It demands attention, awe, respect.
And just like you, it makes me slightly tremble…

And just like you….
…………….it's unapproachable…
So Distant. So Cold.

It's been a while love….
………A million years.

Your heartbeat's still my sanity…
The rain never did betray me…
the rhythm of your heart, it memorized…
It never missed a beat…. Not for a million years now….
I fall asleep and wake up to that rhythm..
It's my favorite melody… my favorite, my most beloved noise…

It's been a while love….
……..a million years.

They stare in awe….
The people.
come and go…
…. generation after generation…

They shudder at the anger of thunder and tremble when lightning strikes.
They fall asleep to rains rhythm…
They listen to the voice of wind…
….can never imitate it's melody…

But they'll never know…
What happened a million years ago.
They'll never know of the contract…
If only they knew, it was all because of you….

But. They will never, ever hear of you…

They'll never know tears paid the price.
They'll never know… it was signed with Love.

It was so long ago…. a million years …
