    ...cause i loved her
    then
    when it was sooo good that
    only
    she and i could feel the energy
    sparks flew
    over clouded eyes dancing
    a thing called romancing
    where everything is new
    cause i loved her
    then
    sunrisen melodies kiss me
    fondly
    swept off in delicate parfume
    disconnected reality keeps pace
    sleep wrapped emotion lit by distant moons
    cause i loved her
    then
    why is a question we're scared to answer
    the thought of an end
    makes us run faster
    to
    somewhere we don't know
    go on until
    tomorrow evening is yesterday
    making way
    for lipless smiles
    cause i loved her
    then
    but all good things never last
    past
    mental awakening
    i'm shaking
    over cold desires unused
    it shouldn't be an excuse
    to carry on
    after she's gone
    but
    somehow i long for those intimate flights
    cause i loved her
    then
    carefree nights
    when dream met imagination
    surely
    this will come again
    until that rift in time
    my heart gently hovers
    beating against silk draped covers
    as a picture slowly fades
    followed by the last sunrays
    lonely tears i cry
    why?
    cause i loved her
    then
    and still...

    love what you call it, Brotha Derrick Jay..."romantic love complex"...well said...

    can I share what brought the chills?

    this right here:

    "somehow i long for those intimate flights
    cause i loved her
    then
    carefree nights
    when dream met imagination
    surely
    this will come again
    until that rift in time
    my heart gently hovers
    beating against silk draped covers
    as a picture slowly fades
    followed by the last sunrays
    lonely tears i cry
    why?
    cause i loved her
    then
    and still..."


    yes.

    Definitly touching!

    "my heart gently hovers
    beating against silk draped covers
    as a picture slowly fades
    followed by the last sunrays
    lonely tears i cry
    why?
    cause i loved her
