Old Pearl Never Forgotten

If i should find my prints
back to your hut
In robes and flesh of grey,
Would you hold me close?


As fresh as the dew
-In dry withered leafs
So is my love for you

I heard men on pores dried up your cistern
While your face held the map of many city.
Yet, I keep longing for you

In your ears, I want to whisper songs of love
While we dance in rumba style

Does your wool hold the lice still?
I shall return home with combs made of wood

In your eyes, i see the glisten tears of butterflies
While your smile paints a thousand picture

Like the days of our youth,
my heart sees you best
And your beauty beams like the sun in an ocean blue

In Sheol, i would love to lie next to you
With pride, i shall watch as we both fade away in silence
