Love And Soul

Ehsan Sehgal

You know
Perhaps not
Perhaps yes
I hold you in my breath
And my heart and my mind
I wish for you happy days
And a wonderful life
I want to see
A glorious, a lovely
A sweet smile
On your face
I hope you enjoy
Your blessed life
I was a stranger
I am a stranger
But my love and soul
Don't recognise the word stranger
My love and soul are for you
That remain for you
I meet you or don't
I see you or don't
There are no barriers
That can stop
My love and soul
Fly towards you
