all because of you

end of the tunnel by anelephantcant

the world was always dark
the sky was never blue
then suddenly the sun appeared
all because of you

my life was dull and dismal
quite grey no other hue
then suddenly the rain stopped
all because of you

nights seemed to last forever
sunny days were few
then winter turned to summer
all because of you

my life was bright and joyful
clouds parted light shone through
lines disappeared from my old face
all because of you

your eyes were my great treasure
your smile my favourite view
my heart at last found happiness
all because of you

but it didn’t last forever
you found somebody new
now I’m alone and broken hearted
all because of you

    I love those lines:
    your eyes were my great treasure
    your smile my favourite view
    Et bien sur le leit-motiv qui donne une cadence au poeme. J’adore la texture des contrastes…. Je pense qu’il y a une chanson qui attend!
