what i meant

did i say that? what i meant was
every leaf falls in a different way
no bird can fly with just one wing
water always knows where to go
sunlight turns the world into gold
the same soft wind touches us all

i meant there is no darkness ever
unless we’ve closed our own eyes
that we always live in this paradise
where solitude sings with solitude
and my silent heart rings like a bell
echoing the pure note of your smile

i didn’t mean to say you amaze me
no i never meant to say i love you
