    Falling In And Out Of Love

    When I say I love you I do
    But this with you will not do
    I need someone I can lean on
    Someone I can count on too

    Yes you are there sometimes
    For that I am grateful to you
    But I need someone there full time
    And that you can not do

    You told me once you loved me
    That I could believe in you
    I was there when you needed someone
    Where were you when I needed someone, too?

    The time has come for me to let go
    Never to expect you to care again
    People may come and people may go
    But my love will never end


    Dream Deferred

    Does it dry up
    Like a raisin in the sun?

    Or fester like a sore--
    And then run?

    Does it stink like rotten meat?
    Or crust and sugar over--
    like a syrupy sweet?

    Maybe it just sags
    like a heavy load.

    Or does it explode?


    If those I loved were lost

    If those I loved were lost
    The Crier's voice would tell me --
    If those I loved were found
    The bells of Ghent would ring --

    Did those I loved repose
    The Daisy would impel me.
    Philip -- when bewildered
    Bore his riddle in!


    Funeral Blues

    Stop all the clocks, cut off the telephone,
    Prevent the dog from barking with a juicy bone,
    Silence the pianos and with muffled drum
    Bring out the coffin, let the mourners come.

    Let aeroplanes circle moaning overhead
    Scribbling on the sky the message He is Dead.
    Put crepe bows round the white necks of the public doves,
    Let the traffic policemen wear black cotton gloves.

    He was my North, my South, my East and West,
    My working week and my Sunday rest,
    My noon, my midnight, my talk, my song;
    I thought that love would last forever: I was wrong.

    The stars are not wanted now; put out every one,
    Pack up the moon and dismantle the sun,
    Pour away the ocean and sweep up the woods;
    For nothing now can ever come to any good.


    If You Forget Me

    I want you to know one thing.

    You know how this is:
    if I look
    at the crystal moon, at the red branch
    of the slow autumn at my window,
    if I touch
    near the fire
    the impalpable ash
    or the wrinkled body of the log,
    everything carries me to you,
    as if everything that exists,
    aromas, light, metals,
    were little boats
    that sail
    toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

    Well, now,
    if little by little you stop loving me
    I shall stop loving you little by little.

    If suddenly
    you forget me
    do not look for me,
    for I shall already have forgotten you.

    If you think it long and mad,
    the wind of banners
    that passes through my life,
    and you decide
    to leave me at the shore
    of the heart where I have roots,
    that on that day,
    at that hour,
    I shall lift my arms
    and my roots will set off
    to seek another land.

    if each day,
    each hour,
    you feel that you are destined for me
    with implacable sweetness,
    if each day a flower
    climbs up to your lips to seek me,
    ah my love, ah my own,
    in me all that fire is repeated,
    in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
    my love feeds on your love, beloved,
    and as long as you live it will be in your arms
    without leaving mine


    True Hurt

    You ask me to quit calling,
    you speak in words of hate.
    You say you never loved me,
    that all those words were fake.

    I never really hurt you,
    at times I thought it fair.
    But you put me down and ridicule
    and never seem to care.

    I thought that you were different,
    that you'd never hurt me.
    But now I know the real you,
    now it's the truth I see.

    Your intentions were clear all along,
    you didn't hide them well.
    I soon found that all you wanted
    was to kick me when I fell.

    But I am smarter now,
    for support I have my friends.
    I know for sure next time,
    this won't be how it ends.


    I'll Never Love Again

    I'll love you forever,
    We will never part.
    Together forever.
    Words straight from the heart.

    These words I told you,
    And I meant what I said.
    But the fire has died down,
    The affection is dead.

    "She said it's over,"
    Your best friend told me.
    You broke my heart, you see.

    The heartbreak was too much,
    I won't be hurt again.
    No more late phone calls,
    No more girlfriends.

    I can't believe you hurt me.
    I thought our love was true…
    How could you do this?

    But I've lost you forever.
    Even as a friend.
    And one lesson you've taught me,


    Leave My Heart'

    I wonder why you went
    To a place where I could never go
    When you had everything with me
    Only you will ever know

    You never left me any time
    To record the feeling of your touch
    Where did the loving ever go
    When it all once meant so much

    You leave my heart, you steal my soul
    And time won't fill the empty hole
    You left in me when you walked out

    Just leaving sorrow, pain and doubt
    But I'll go on,
    I'll find another one

    Who'll treasure all that I will be
    Who'll treasure all that I've become

    So when you leave, don't take me with you
    I couldn't bare to leave this place
    Where all the memories reside
    In the beauty of your face

    Your love it dripped from your fingertips
    With your blind caress
    And made my soul sway with sorrow
    That it will never be
    here again with me

    It creeps to me in the cold of night
    When my heart has wishes I can't fulfil
    Your arms sweeten the sound of sorrow
    But only … only until ...

    ... You leave my heart, you leave my soul
    New love will fill the empty hole
    You left in me when you walked out
    No more sorrow, fear or doubt

    But I'll go on,
    Yes I've moved on
    I'll find another one
    Who'll treasure all that I will be
    Who'll treasure all that I've become


    Forgive me

    Forgive me for what cannot be forgiven.
    Open up the door I once slammed closed.
    Restore the love that I once squandered, driven
    Grimly by some grinch I've since deposed.
    I cannot plead for what I cannot fathom,
    Valuing least the value I most crave.
    Each heart must sometimes haunt the steep-walled chasm,
    Made mad by wrath and selfish songs that rave
    Empty on the edges of the grave


    Touch Yourself

    I understand the why
    Yet I cannot grasp the how;
    But if this is the way you must handle us
    I will try to understand somehow.

    There is one thing that I ask
    As you walk away;
    Please create a corner in your heart for me
    So at least, there, I can always stay.

    You will always be my love
    That will never change;
    Though we are going separate ways
    That fact remains the same.

    I know we must let each other go
    Circumstances force us to set each other free;
    But today, I give back to you . . . your words -
    Touch Yourself and You Touch Me.
    ...being a human...
