She beckons me
The girl across the sea
I cannot resist her call
I cannot resist her at all
Was it fate that our paths crossed?
Could she help me come back from this feeling of being lost?
There is something about her
Is she the one?
Will I ever find out?
Will she brighten my life like the sun?
I look at her photo
Mysterious grey eyes
Her beautiful face
I can memorise
I hope one day to meet
So our hearts can entwine
When that day comes
I will ask her to be mine
I want to know about her
Who is she?
One day I’ll sail or fly
To the girl across the sea
A thousand galloping horses couldn’t keep us apart
Is this girl my destiny? Will she capture my heart?
I can see us in the future
Hand in hand on walks in the park
Street lamps will flicker
From the power of our hearts that spark
Sat on a bench reading poetry from a book
Cuddling in a pub in a secret inglenook
Loving eyes over tables, sharing milkshake in cafes
Walking you home but stop to kiss you in some shop doorways
Underneath umbrellas and dancing in the rain
A few whispered words and your heart I hope to attain
I’ve no idea what will happen
But what will be will be
This poem I wrote for you alone
The girl from across the sea
