I Asked For Your Name

by Jesus Andrade (author's profile)


I asked for your name
For I yearned to say it
To whisper it in my dreams
Through warm summer nights

To whisper it in the park
For a gentle breeze to carry it
In the mornings while sippin’ Tea

Brown and sweet
Is your name
Said in the night
To brighten my days

I asked for your name
Because your beauty caught me
Leaving me speechless
That very night

Yes, night
For I saw you then
Smiling at me
Remember you and nothing more

For with a wave of your hand
Your hair curled
Bouncing off your shoulders
As I gazed

Watching you attentively
In vain
Bring denied the pleasure
Of knowing your name

You disappeared from my life
With a gentle wave…
…of your hand
