My “instead”~

Janko Ferlic

Let me dance in my joyful pain
Let me dance in my tears of rain
Every artist have their style
Most skillfully advanced
are known more by style
than by their name

With you as my canvas
my brushes are my fingers, my mouth,
the warmth of my breath
You are my most malleable of muse
and yet in my heart
I remain confused

My words have taken flight
leaving me here alone to translate
My emotions have all merged
without an index to separate
And I afraid I’ve taken far too
much on my plate

But right now my mind is strong
Right now my heart is bold
Right now I am able to carry on
And nothing will weaken my love
So pour the wine, let the music play
Mind, body and soul are here to stay

So cover me with your love
anoint my broken spirit
Tell me you are my earth and heaven above
Soothe my decades of longing
Let me see beyond the pain of my
of disappointments

And when the morning comes
And evening’s memories have faded
Tell my yesterdays I have left for good
Tell my tomorrows not to plan ahead
Cause today is very much all I have
and laying here with you is my “instead”
