Once Upon a Love
There was a dark night which lasted years,
And it seemed to rain so many tears,
Then the sun came up, my darling love,
And there were blue skies again above.
I was lost in a train tunnel it seemed,
Black as soot, trapped, like in a bad dream,
Then in came the light of your tender love,
And once more I could see the birds above.
I recall a very sad autumn day,
When all happiness had vanished away,
And I reminisced, once upon a love,
I watched my memories float high above.
I remember a long cruel winter,
So very cold, lonely and bitter,
Then there was a warm new spring, my love,
With a hot summer sun shining above.
Opposing states, of which angels sang,
Dark and light, cold and hot, Yin and Yang,
As opposite as loneliness and love,
As different as hell, and heaven above.
We all have dreams which we need to chase,
We all search until we find our own place,
We all have hearts that desire love,
We all hope in this life to rise above.
