Efthimios William Cornelius

Miles from my eyes


I spent all of my life, calling you mine.
All I was doing was hoping someday,
I'd make you my wife.

I cannot tell you were I was in life.
There were times where I was down on my knees.
Searching as it became out of my hands

Here I was, where were you?
I was just beaten down.
Times came and gone.
My desperation grasped a hold of me.
Here you were miles from my eyes.

Today miles away seems to me,
is to be getting closer.
And here I go finding myself here.
What would time give?

It’s always nice to pretend
finding you here next to me.
But what does a boy got to do just to turn into a man?
Loving you forever just makes it better.
Finding you once again ,
Asking God could we be here to receive

Here I was, where were you?
I was just beaten down.
Times came and gone.
My desperation grasped a hold of me.
Here you were miles from my eyes.

    Aw, this is prettily heart-wrenching with an excellent bit of a refrain. Yazza, I'll second Robert and if you do add a melody, me would love to hear it sung. Thanks for sharing. A bittersweet angle on this Valentine's Eve and spot-on.
