Golden Arrow

Our eyes met,
You smiled and spoke
Your lips, my neck

My heart was yours
Long before your touch
Love, lust, intimate trust

Shoot the arrow straight and true
meant to be, return to you
Where timing’s right, the stars align
Shall be yours, for all time

What drew me on
Held you back
Timing's out, could this be wrong

You were to leave
I had to stay
I dared not ask what could remain

You shut me out
I shut you off
That golden arrow shot me down

Shoot the arrow straight and true
Let it go, return to you
Where timing’s right and meant to be
Shall be yours, wait and see

On the ground and
Bruised and hurting my
Golden arrow it
Shot me down
Clouds roll by as
Years unfold and
Love and loss and truths untold

I send a dove straight and true
Let it go, it flies to you
Where timing’s right and meant to be
You send it back, back to me

Shoot the arrow straight and true
Meant to be, return to you
Where timing’s right, the stars align
Shall be yours, for all time
