fragrances in time

January 19, 2005

red dust on my shoes
tears, endless tears
life marches on
moving forever onward
slowly, painfully slowly

my passion overflows
containing my feelings for you is impossible
the only relief is expressing them
before the dam bursts
before i am overcome by the tears
swept away in grief
i need to know that you love me

life moves quickly
one day at a time
we have no guarantees but today
this moment, right now
how much more must i do to convince you of my love for you?
