It flickers with a smile

And kindles with a touch

It spreads like wildfire

This wanting you so much


It sleeps with me at night

While trembling with desire

The want of you gets stronger

When the sun above gets higher


It fuels the beating of my heart

My body shakes with wonder

This wanting you tears me apart

Can't live like this much longer


It fills my eyes with tears

My heart with heavy sorrow

And yet this wanting is the Light

That Guides all my Tomorrows
