Song of Madeleine ©

J.M. Smith
Illinois, USA
1969

They say the man who sees the most
is one whose eyes are blind...
The man who chases love through life
is always far behind...
Perhaps they're right, but this I know...
My heart holds one refrain,
repeated after each sad verse
for one called Madeleine..

To see her eyes and touch her face
and feel her warmth to me...
To know, again, the scent of her
which fills my memory.
Call it love if you like, or lust..
No matter what the name..
Her being beckons my desire.
I long for Madeleine..

Our lives had once been miles apart,
but fate must have its game..
And now my mind and now my heart
bear portrait, Madeleine.
I sit and think and once again
I wonder if it's right
to want the lovely Madeleine
as I want her tonight..

They say the man who sees the most
is one whose eyes are blind...
The man who chases love through life
is always far behind...
Perhaps they're right, but this I know..,
My heart holds one refrain.,
repeated after each sad verse
for one called Madeleine..
