Tag Archives: Repentance


Dimples and desire were
The only things you needed
I had to recognize
And be the first that heeded

All the others were blind
When it came to your treasure
Your opened eyes reflected
What gems were your pleasure

The minstrels in your court
Thought their songs were attended
Then I heard her foot stop
And new musicians blended

The jester in your court
Recognized the silence
I failed to please the Queen
All laughed at my penance

The period ends the sentence.
These words stop here you know.
We all see your repentance;
It’s also time you go.

Nothing for loving he’s all buried in
Nothing for innocence repenting his sin
Nothing for sharing in hands empty hold
Nothing for touching his soul has been sold
