Desert enclosed

Look into my eyes
Do you not see
The desert of my soul
A place of hollowness
Where sands of despair
Blow in the winds of hope
Yes, the rains of joy have gone
But are you the one
To bring them back again
For the sunlight not to burn
But to make the flowers grow
Tell me one day soon
If you care to be the one
To make the desert forever be gone
I'll be waiting for you
But please don't let this desert be
Don't let it overcome my soul
Or I shall die a death
Of great burns of sorrow
