A Long Time

It's been so long
such a long while
since I've seen that life
since I've kissed that smile

It's been so long
long, and far
since I've seen that smile
and felt that warmth

I miss those hands
tender and strong
Those blue flamed eyes-
burned in my mind, everlong

I miss his yellow hair
The softness of his skin
I miss his scent,
The love his lips held in

It's been so long
but soon I felt his arms
wrap warm round me
I felt that fire, that flame

His arms were still so warm
and his heart still so alive
though his eyes only flickered
I felt my love fan the flame

Cool summer night came
and so did he-
with open heart,
arms ready to wrap round me

Though he seemed at first to resist,
before night had gone too long
he came to hold me close,
-I felt safe in his arms so strong

Though he's gone, once again
I find he calls on me.
I wonder if he'll soon return;
If anew, his love will blaze for me

It's been so long,
So long indeed
But I see him return
I know he comes for me
