    when you come across a love from so long ago
    and you think from within just say hello
    and then you happen to look in their eyes
    and then you come to realize
    that the love you had for someone so long ago
    had never past, even when you thought it so
    so you turn your head to erase what you thought you seem
    then gently he comes whispering in the breeze
    so gently you feel him rubbing your shoulders, rubbing your back
    you want to lay your head back and relax
    and then it connects just where you are at

    so he says with motion of the lips
    i never gotten over you
    and then he walks down the steps
    and turn saying it very plain again
    my love for you is still the same
    what is one to do
    so common sense plays the part
    when it comes to romance of the heart
    never ever saying a word
    you just watch him walk away
    saying over and over again
    I still love you
    i still love you
    i love you
    so you walk away
    never turning your head again
    never turning around
    never looking back
    never again

    Wow...sometimes you have to listen to the phrase that saids..."never say never"...
    because if you don't, then it's replaced with "If"...and we all know that "if" is the smallest word in the dictionary...but has the biggest meaning.

    this was quite an amazing piece of work, it was like: 'blowing in the wind...

    Wow, Blue

    This was beautiful. Sometimes, you come across a great love for someone and it never ever leaves you. That's not necessarily a bad thing. :look:

    This was heartbreaking, really, feeling the love so strongly, but letting it walk away, perhaps because it took you by surprise? This was deeply felt.
