Your smile of bliss

Boy
From Sailing Happy Boy

Think of a love lost long ago
Dream of a love never found
Live in a love that comes and goes
In a love where I seem to be bound.

Too many nights spent all alone
Lost inside thoughts and dreams
Longing for something I’ll never have
For what never can be, it seems.

Trying so hard to be content
With life the way it is
But always so dissatisfied
When it takes more than it gives.

Dream of a night so long ago
When for once I was myself
But it was just a fantasy
Now put back on the shelf.

Such a short time there is left
And still it slips on by
Such a short time we are here
Before we say goodbye.

Living in the deep regret
Of what will never be
Longing for the simple bliss
That your smile gave to me…
