    I Missed Your Smile Today.

    On the platform I watched with fascination the lovers at the station Lost in tender admiration I had to turn my gaze away. For the first time in a long time I missed your smile today. Living life at a pace, agents to please, speeches to make and deadlines to keep. The only time...

    Long Distance Love

    Miles of empty air between us, We still manage to love. Through time and space, The affection finds its way. Words cannot take the place Of physical contact. But somehow, Love finds a way.

    Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night,

    Quiet is the wait. One wish, one dream, Two voices searching, Three little words. Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night, Quiet is the wait. You only know, And we have hope, I can only wish. Dark is the sky, Lonely is the night, Quiet is the wait.
