[this is said to be audrey hepburn’s favorite poem.]
I seem to have loved you in numberless forms, numberless times… In life after life, in age after age, forever. My spellbound heart has made and remade the necklace of songs, That you take as a gift, wear round your neck in your many forms, In life after life, in age after age, forever.
Whenever I hear old chronicles of love, it’s age-old pain, It’s ancient tale of being apart or together. As I stare on and on into the past, in the end you emerge, Clad in the light of a pole-star piercing the darkness of time: You become an image of what is remembered forever.
You and I have floated here on the stream that brings from the fount. At the heart of time, love of one for another. We have played along side millions of lovers, shared in the same Shy sweetness of meeting, the same distressful tears of farewell- Old love but in shapes that renew and renew forever.
Today it is heaped at your feet, it has found its end in you The love of all man’s days both past and forever: Universal joy, universal sorrow, universal life. The memories of all loves merging with this one love of ours – And the songs of every poet past and forever.
My mind is racing But it wont come out Try to breathe but I’m suffocating Just be me but it’s complicated I wanna tell you who I am, where I’m from, where I go when I wanna be alone I want you to know me better Once I get my thoughts together Should be so easy to tell you how I’m feeling But I cant stop stuttering Stuttering, stuttering da da, stuttering doo doo doo doo whoa stuttering I ain’t usually lost for words This is got to be a first And I’m startin’ to think you are why I’m stu-stu-stu-stuttering
