I Must Confess

Tonight Before I close my eyes And drift off to a land of make-believe I must confess This beating heart of mine is yours And if you wished for my kisses Then I’ll give you three more wishes My Heart  My Soul My Mind Belongs to you with small bows on top As if they…

Love in quiet places

In quiet places  When the sun has said its goodbyes And the moon shines on the memories that we made  These are the moments when I forget your face  The warmth you once had  Leaves this beating in my chest untouched On these cold nights Guided by the moon’s light  I forget your singing  The…
