A GLIMPSE OF YOU (Inspired by King of Fools)


A glimpse of you is all it takes

to fall in love again.

But – God! – I see you all the time

and I feel like it’s a crime

to want to be your man.

I see you with him every day,

I see you smile and chat,

and you look happy,

yes, you do,

but sometimes you seem sad.

I hear you love him – so they say –

you never say a word,

but I am sure you feel my love

and it is so absurd

to be connected,

yet neglected,

feel abandoned

and alone …


My heart’s a burning stone

inside my chest.

I love you still

and there’s no rest.
