The First Time I Loved Forever...

"Somewhere I have never traveled
Gladly beyond any experience
Your eyes have their silence
In your most frail gesture of things which enclose me
which I cannot touch, because they are too near"

The first time I Loved forever... when you
whispered my name
And I knew at once you Loved me
For the me of whom I am

The first time i loved forever
I cast all else aside
And i bid my heart to follow
Be there no more need to hide

And if wishes and dreams..
Are mearly for children
And.. if loves a tale for fools
I'll live the dream with you.

"Or if your wish be to close me,
I and my life will shut very beautifully, suddenly,
As when the heart of this flower..
Imagines the snow, carefully, everywhere

For all my life and forever.
There's a truth I will always know
When my world divides and shatters..
Your love is where I'll go

I do not know what it is about you..
That closes and opens
Only something in me understands..
The voice of your eyes is deeper than all roses.
No-body.. not even the rain, has such small hands
