Soul Mates



This crazy world we live in,
has been drifting us apart.
But still there is this feeling.
We’re together in the heart.

Money has made you worry
and put your love for me aside.
It wasn’t you weren’t sorry;
hard times had made us fight.

I knew from the beginning,
after the painful breaking up,
our love, it would keep winning;
it was too strong to ever stop.

We both now leading separate lives
at a distance hard to bridge,
unbreakable our love still thrives,
and deep within we’re rich.

So overwhelmed, I am by it,
You‘ve been here to shortly stay,
absorbed your every word and wit,
once more you had to go away.

New people have been added
to the bonds we so well knew.
It’s a fact you have re-wedded;
but the warmth between us grew.
