Long Ago and Evermore

If we ever pass the way again
and chance to meet one day,
I will sense there is something about your smile
and I will stop you and say:
Will you tell me, please, the way to your heart?
I've been there in other days,
perhaps long ago in another life
but I cannot remember the way.
I mean no offence, but I know your voice.
By chance, do you recognize mine?
There is something about you that takes my breath.
Is this some mysterious sign?
And then, still perplexed, I will take your hand
and our touch will unlock the door
to the glorious memories of love we shared
long ago and evermore.


So, when we pass this way again
in a week or a thousand years,
take no offence and don't be afraid,
I simply want you to hear
the words from my soul I'm compelled to say:
Tell me, please, the way to your heart,
I've been there in different days.
Was it long ago in another life?
Please help me remember the way.


Here, hold my hand.

    I am sure that the way will be found and you will walk the path together.

    works well, either with young love
    or that forever love, of yearning and loss..
    in-fact, you could clarify this write
    as a Portrait of Love!
