Loves Dividing Wall

In your arms I imagine
No divide of region
In your eyes I dream
No country more supreme

Separated by oceans
Yet neighbours we join
Cut off by guns divide
No touching, loving denied

The air that we breathe is equal
The skies that we see is identical
The tears that we cry, drinks our pain
Apart by borders, united in passions

My heart refuses to turn from defeat
My mind contests deplete
Walls of barriers cannot seize my desire
Barricades of battlements quench not
loves acquire

Hope in the impossible shall never die
Anticipation in the unattainable
By no means defy
Faith in the odds, my assurance,
my rely

Throw me ball-like, to the other side
Catch me in freedom, lest free will collide
Hold peace in wars harrowing toll
Embrace my hope, permit us whole

My heart echo’s through these barriers
Reaching your heart, uniting warriors
Its tone of sound silent yet spoken
Written on sounds waves, unbroken

Connected we are in silence love, calm
Stillness in chaos, confident in alarm
No walls, no heights, no depth, no width
Will separate our love from hence we

Therefore, write on the walls of divide
Write our hearts promise to unite
Write for freedom, for peace
Write to patent, write for appease

Inscribe for the generations to come
Engrave our hope, for these borders
to succumb
Loves strength is stronger than war
Exchange enemies for love, spillage of blood

My love, my hope, my drive, my passion
Read my heart, interpret my vision
