The Art Of Longing


The art

of longing

I know it quite well

It's in the eyes

And written on your face

An image of that timeless spell


The melancholy hues

It's the art of longing

A portrait of the blues

It's the art of longing


The art of longing

The muted tones of goodbye

It's the fine details

And the shifting light

That catch my eye


Every setback, another brushstroke

Every heartbreak, another color

Every dark tint of lonely night

Balanced only by splashes of light

Light from the radiant joy of new love

And only by embracing the many ways of belonging

Do we come to know the art of longing


The melancholy hues

It's the art of longing

A portrait of the blues

It's the art of longing

It's the art of longing

It's the art of longing
