I Remain

When you met me like a weary traveller
I gave my love like a cup of nectar

I never knew you would desert me for years
Leaving me to quench my thirst with tears

You may forget the music of my heart strings
In a strange land, when a melodious cuckoo sings

My words of love you may not recall
When you hear a beautiful parrot's call

But I remain, with my cup of love overflowing
Tuning my heart strings for old melodies which I sing

Writing and Re-writingLyrics of love and pain
Words fill my world - But in silence I Remain
