** You'Re Always In My Heart **

What shall I say?
When you're in my thoughts
All night and day.
Like a candle on mantelpiece
Crinkle and burn
So bright a showpiece
To light my dark nights.
Into that flame
Of orange and red lights,
I see your statuesque silhouette
A shadow to haunt
In love's name to taunt.


What shall I say?
When you're in my thoughts
Be it in summer’s rain,
Autumn or snow’s pain.
Through the clinking glasses at night
Or the mist in the morning’s dew delight,
In your vermal whispers
Or your brumal sighs
I hear my name, called again and again
Against the rustle of the crackling dried leaves
On lonely pathways of solitude
Like sun-dried orange autumn in Hamburg
So loud, so clear
A call, I cannot ignore


What shall I say?
When I see the lavender trees
A purpled hue
Sunrays streaming through the maple and juniper
And me, a trampled rosemary pauper,
Still trying to creep back fragrant memories.
The magpie, the lorikeets
The quails, the eglets
All eyeing that poor little giblet
Just tying to fall back into the goblet
Then I felt, as if spring came back with posies of pansies
And winters of starry nights, like dasies
Glistening in my dreams, as shingles,
On white sands of beaches,
and angels in heaven
Orchestrated in choirs
Just singing your sweet name


What shall I say?
O dove of love
That pigeon of Trafalgar
flying to me, like beggar
With a crumb of bread
Grabbed from the hands of a lonely soul
Just seeking some love
Some peace, some air
Some space, . some ale,
Some wine of love.
Then you're in my thoughts
And I walk like I waltz,
What shall I do?
Lord, What shall I do?
For I have a fragile heart,
A heart of ceramic,
Though cracked and sealed
So often with glue
Still dreams to be
the queen on the rue! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! ! !
