TILL I SEE

TOGETHER

IS NEVER CLOSE

ENOUGH FOR ME

INTENSE ARE THE FEELINGS

OF MY SOUL

ON FIRE IS THE DESIRE

OF MY HEART

SO CLOSE TO ME

IS YOU

SO DIFFICULT TO TELL

THEM APART

YOU HAVE BECONE BOTH

MY SOUL AND HEART…STILL

TOGETHER

IS NEVER CLOSE

ENOUGH FOR ME…TIL

WITH WAITING EYES,

YOUR HEART AND SOUL

…IS ME I SEE
