Sands of Centuries Swirl by my Side
I wonder, has there ever been a day?--an ordinary day
turned extraordinary simply by meeting someone;
and that someone became everything;
and everything changed the course of life.
May eternity see
What one night has done to me.
The fever of your spell
To no-one shall I tell.
Perhaps, I am blind,
To myself, unbelievingly unkind.
Before this life
Does slip away,
I wish to lay
One kiss upon thee this day;
For it shall be forever
Upon this touch
We shall stay.
If one were to ask my advice,
I would reveal a revelation
Which I believe to be quite concise;
A belief in thy self is a love
That one cannot do without,
As respect bestowed upon a being
Returns a spirit equally devote.
