The Way You Move Me

i didn't know i missed you so much
i didn't know i was hiding this ache so well
how did i get to be the lucky one?
chosen by you?
how did i get to be so damn lucky
to become part of you?
breath, bone and blood
face to face
earth and sky
rains
and sun
wars and revolutions
life and death
we belong now
to each other
for better or for worse
i've given it all
to you.

NIcole,
This sums up exactly how I feel about Africa too. It gets in your bones. The red dust settles into your blood and never leaves. THanks for sharing. You'll go home soon.
