My Innamorata


a burning flame from the start

captured this lonesome heart

i feel you near me

even an ocean apart from you

yearning, waiting, hoping

more than emotions this passion for both.


the highs and lows we have conquered

sharks tried to bite off our feet

but still we chose to swim

in this sea of love only the two of us are in

my innamorata in the land of my dreams

a lass is swept off by your gentle arms.


loving you like the way i breathe in every second

being far from you is not a hindrance

to build our castles in the air today

and seeing them all come true sooner

only fools would say this is too hard and so better quit

for they don’t know true love waits.


look at how we made it through

this valley of the tempests and turbulence in our flight

in every second that passes, you are there in my mind, innamorata

we simply cannot let go of each other will break us into tiny pieces if we ever dare

our love is still growing strong, will make it through

will weather all storms and what might ever go wrong.
