Beyond the Far Cloud

By Wallid Abdallah

Beyond the far cloud in the vast sky

I built you a palace of stars so high

Where your eyes lighten the universe

And spread love hearts can't express

Let's live a legendary love with no end

Help me fix a broken heart and mend

A heart waiting for you before life

Tasting every pain and endless strife

Looking into your eyes pushes life into my vein

Like a desertthat first tastes drops of rain

Your hair is like waves of a very calm sea

Into my soul your loveis a deep rooted tree

I will always water our love tree with my soul

Each leaf carrying our names and will never fall

Beyond the far cloud I have been waiting

For two souls that will always be mating

You shone like a bright sun ending my night

You will be always there in front of my sight

Away from you I no longer exist

Between your arms I find my rest

With you life smiles, stars dance and sing

I owe you the happiness you always bring

Beyond the far cloud I offer you my heart

It is just the beginning, it is a simple start

Will you accept the present my dear

And end my pain, suffering and fear?

Waiting for you beyond the far cloud

My heart is calling your name aloud

Don't be late, don't let my heart down

Into your sea, I am always ready to drown
