Beneath the willow tree..


1- You left me a unpaid debt,

that must be kept.

Once you promised me everything.

Now you have besieged my heart and

I am willing to love you,

forever and a day.

And I will owe you everything I have.

2- Beneath the willow tree,

we shared a kiss.

You and I swayed with the midnight gentle wind.

We held tight embrace for the Summer moon.

I told her, all I have is verse and prose to give to you.

She smiled and she whispered.

A poet love, I shall be.

And I demand a million words of praise,

to be never forgotten in story or tale,

till the sky fall into the sea.
