Love is Long

Take your fingers from my heart, no don’t
We will always be apart, we won’t
It’s been said that love is short, forgetting long
But in my soul I hear another song

Love is long, goes on and on
There is no pain when love is gone
Forgetting then could start perchance
If love were short then I would dance

Though your lips may bid farewell
Words are simply syllables
Far beyond its doleful song
I know now that love is long

Love me, love me, mutual pain
Mutual tear-drops in the rain
Forgetting might begin to dawn
If love were not quite so long

Ruthless ivy in my mind
We are hopelessly entwined
Wrapped around a tender song
I hear it whisper, love is long
