Wait

The footprints I left on the sand

Might be washed away.

The place where we stayed

Might vanish.

And your goodbye waves

Might be lost in a packed street.

But the silver lines of your eyes, and

The heat of your lips

Like the beats of my heart

Will stay.

***

So I‘ll wait,

Till you’re back.

We ‘ll walk, on the beach, hand in hand.

We ‘ll sleep, on the hay, unapart.

I have faith (that) you’ll be back.

For you-man, should begin

Find your path

Back your home,

‘Cause  your heart,

Knows I wait.
