ALL THE GIRLS BEFORE YOU

Adel Bishtawi

Love me as I will,
If you want me still,
All the girls before you,
Since I was a kid,
Said to me ‘I love you,’
But they never did.

Last time was different,
Different yet again,
But they always lead you,
Down the memory lane,
With every break,
The heart will ache,
And broken will remain,
The greater the love,
The greater the dream,
The greater the loss,
The greater the pain.
THE GREATER THE LOVE,
THE GREATER THE DREAM,
THE GREATER THE LOSS,
THE GREATER THE PAIN.
And broken,
Will remain.

Dream on little heart,
Of springs that never end,
Of the lips of roses,
Pouting for the wind,
Of love that’s like stars,
Forever young; forever glow,
And lovers, like stars,
They never grow,
They never grow.

Love me as I will,
If you want me still,
All the girls before you,
Since I was a kid,
Said to me ‘I love you,’
But they never did,
So, love me,
And I’ll love you,
TILL THE END.
