Bali Passion

Never knew a passion
could taste this sweet
that a whole island
could get inside your heartbeat

Never knew a people you could love
one and all
strangers who’d pick you up
if you fall, by smiling

30 days are not enough
No, no, no, 60 days – nowhere near enough

Never knew that rice fields
could be so impossibly green
against a magic back-drop
sight unseen

Never knew such rainfall
nor lightning strikes
or colours of the rainbow
on motorbikes

90 days are not enough
No, no, no, 100 days still not enough

Never been bathed in an energy
so strong
realised the difference between black and white
right and wrong

Never thought I’d stay here
my whole life through
Bali you have given to me
now what can I do for you?
