Can I breathe next to you

a poem by

Altaaf Jaffer

Everyday, I realize that you are all that I need
I’ve been prayin’ for some lovin’ in my life
I’ve been cravin’ for some lovin’ from your side

I love the things you say and all the things you do
Don’t you need some loving too?
Honey let me come closer to you everyday,
I realize that you are all that I need
I’ve been prayin’ for some loving in my life
I’ve been cravin’ for some lovin’ from your side

I love the things you say and all the things you do
Don’t you need some loving too?
Honey let me come closer to you everyday,
I realize that you are all that I need
I’ve been prayin’ for some loving in my life
I’ve been cravin’ for some lovin’ from your side

I love the things you say and all the things you do
Don’t you need some loving too?
Honey let me come closer to you
Baby, Can I breathe next to you?
‘Coz I know you’ll drive away my blues
Darling, I love to love you recklessly
Won’t you let me hold you close to you?

Tonight, I’ve been watching you close to me
Quietly, I’m wishing you were holding me
I’d love to spend life with you by my side
I’d love to live with you until I die

I love the scent you wear and the clothes you choose
Take my hand and take me
everywhere with you
Honey let me come closer to you

Can I breathe next to you? Feel your lips on top of mine
Lemme touch your skin tonight
Babe, move ya body close to mine.

All I Need

a poem by

Altaaf Jaffer

All I need and always will
Is one wish God ‘n’ you can fulfill
And nothing anyone else will do
Can stop me from loving you

So lean on me, I’m all yours
I’m no Angel from the heavens above
I have a heart achin’ bad enough
All it needs to heal is your love

‘coz all I need and will always do-
Is this love I’ve found with you
I’ll be your love ‘n’ your strength
As long as you want me – until the end

Count on me trust me please
Put my worried mind at ease
Time won’t change the way I feel
Darling you’re all I’ll ever need

Talk to me, I’m all yours
I love you with all my heart
Give me hope instead of fear
Tell me words I’ve longed to hear

Hold my hand, be my love
Love, I’ve waited long enough
Hold me close ‘n’ lead me on
Stay with me and make me strong

Come to me, say you’ll never leave
I love you more than you can believe
I’m sure everytime we are together-
That all I need is you, forever

Missing You Tonight

a poem by

Altaaf Jaffer

Darkness
No light from heaven,
No flames from hell
Echoes
The only sounds I hear,
Are the words you yell
Screaming
We’ve had our fun,
We’ve had our fights
Babe
Where are you now?
I’m missing you tonight

Thunder
With the crushing of the waves,
From the lightning in the sky
Tears
For the new love in your life
And the dust in my eyes
Poison
From the kisses I’ve got
And this forbidden wine
Darling
Come back into my life
I’m missing you tonight

Dreams
Really close to life
Still the best I’ve had
Heartache
Never felt so real
Never hurt so bad
Hoping
Am I running in circles,
Am I losing my pride?
Baby
I need you now
I’m missing you tonight

You are…

a poem by

Altaaf Jaffer

You are most lovable as you are
You’re every wish inside my heart
You are like the stars in the sky
And a million blooming flowers

You are a diamond in the dark
You’re every wish in my heart
The reason I’m feeling this strong
You’re the meaning in this song

My World, My Life

a poem by

Altaaf Jaffer

My world’s been a catastrophe
Learning to live with your conspiracies
All against me – you all are one
You’re happy ‘coz I’m heartbroken

My life keeps getting worse
And I only keep getting hurt
I’m feeling run down and bruised
Your wickedness wins again as I lose

And through this intempestivity
Many times I feel very lonely
But I still believe in love
And in the loving angel of mercy

Someday, I’ll get stronger and heal
When God moves these dark clouds above
Just like the river finds the sea
Someday I’m sure, I’ll find love.

Love is Blind

a poem by

Altaaf Jaffer

When I loved you, we both had fun
I’m sure I really loved just once
Holding on to a cocktail of hopes ‘n’ dreams
In tranquility, my heart gently weeps ‘n’ screams

Used to be dazzled by your love always
I easily believed every word you said
Couldn’t see beyond your flashy smile
Never imagined you’d leave me behind

And I believed all the sweet lies
Babe, it’s true that LOVE IS BLIND
‘Coz my loving eyes could never see
That you were making a fool of me
