    MY HEART SKIPPED A BEAT

    I didn't hear the sound of your footsteps last night,
    *And suddenly my heart skipped a beat*
    I waited and waited...but no footsteps came,
    *And suddenly my heart skipped a beat*
    Where can you be...it's half past 3
    and dear heart, it's cold out tonight.

    Did we part with a fight, when you left last night?
    did I say anything... that didn't sound right?

    There's no footsteps yet, and it's almost 4
    no peace will I have...till you walk through that door.

    Will my mind run wild, like it sometimes do,
    at the thought of being here...with the absence of you.
    and the thought of no you...turned my whole world blue...
    *And suddenly my heart skipped a beat*

    I tossed and turned, the whole night throu,
    hoping and praying...for the safety of you.
    daylight has come...and it's the hour of 5
    my eyes are now swole...from my all night cries.

    Then suddenly...from out of nowhere,
    I heard his footsteps on the stairs.
    My heart relaxed, and my face have a grin,
    he's come back safe...but where has he been?

    Well the answer to that... was a mystery,
    so I kindly told him to return my key.
    And go back where...from which he came,
    cause I don't have time...for these silly games.

    This time, by choice...I am all alone,
    not for him, or no one...will I fall from my throne.
    It's been real my love, ...it's been a nice ride,
    and as much as it hurts me...I must say good-bye :wave:
    *And suddenly my heart skipped a beat* ​

    misery loves company and will entertain you as long as you allow it. I am graceful that you took the time share this with me...much love
