    i went for a walk

    the air was fresh and clean
    like after a soft, summer's rain

    i imagined myself with you


    the smell of dalfodills
    rolled off the hillside

    as i went about my way

    i bowed my head and began to pray
    but my prayer was filled with selfish requests
    innocence robbed through fornication...no less

    i knew in my heart...that this shouldn't be
    one of such purity...with someone like me

    i raised my eyes and looked heavenward
    to powder blue skies...covering the face of my GOD
    i walked some more...while asking of HE
    "please, allow this to be the one for me"

    when i lowered my eyes...standing quietly before me
    was this beautiful creature...i thought you to be
    i closed my eyes...then, opened again
    to reassure myself this wasn't a dream

    moments later, the rains came again
    washed away this vision...from the tip of my hand
    i watched as your beauty just faded away
    and vowed you'd be mine...in some future day

    while making my way back...to my quiet, little home
    i pondered the life path my heart had turned on
    i thought of the smiles you've given me
    an emprisoned heart you managed to set free

    upon returning to my quaint and humble abode
    gave one last glance down that old, dusty road
    there, you stood,...with that smile on your face
    letting me know...my quest wasn't a waste

    i waved, with a smile, as you faded away
    taking with you everything i wanted to say

    so, i said, silently...goodbye.
