The Secret (poem)

Twas then I faced my final destiny

Upon my cheek that kiss which wasn’t right

A secret that is drifting in the sea

-

It started as a distant memory

We bared our hearts and held each other tight

Twas then I faced my final destiny

-

Each day contained the dreams of you and me

Our songs of love did echo through the night

A secret that is drifting in the sea

-

We pledged to love like this eternally

Within our eyes we searched for our delight

Twas then I faced my final destiny

-

Then came this flowered fate that couldn’t be

A shadowed figure challenging our light

A secret that is drifting in the sea

-

You asked of me alas to set you free

I loved you so your Joy I couldn’t spite

Twas then I faced my final destiny

A secret that is drifting in the sea
