GOODBYEI’d wanted to speak, so many words of love to you. Now you search restlessly for miracles lost. But when my musical clocks play,it’s wedding time. Oh your sweet eyes are my favorite flowers. And your heart is my kingdom of heaven. Let me glimpse inside. You are entirely of glittering mint, and so softly lost in thought. I’d wanted to speak, so many words of love to you. Why didn’t I?

LISTENAt night I used to steal the rose of your mouth, so that no other woman could drink there. The one who now embraces you is taking away the shivers I drew around your limbs. I am your wayside. The one to touch you is bound o fall. Can you feel my essence all over, as if it were a distant hem?

TO THE PRINCE OF THE GRAILWhen we look at each other our eyes blossom. And we are astounded by the miracles we create. And everything is pure sweetness. We are framed by stars and take flight from the world. I believe we are angels.
