I had not remembered; I had not dared,
Her subtle gestures, that had me ensnared.
She was my woman; I was her man,
Someone to guide me; when the heart ache began.
The day I first saw you; to the day we first spoke,
Those precious treasures; have gone up in smoke.
The world was our oyster; your lips were my rum,
Our love made us lay there; under the sun.
I try and forget you; forget our favorite song,
My days get so lonely; and god they're so long.
I must not surrender; I must soldier on,
Cause loving you baby, can never be wrong.
Your soothing fragrance; still hangs in the air,
One whiff sends me plunging; back into despair.
And babe I still love you, don't get me wrong,
I'm just so tired, been waiting too long.
My life was in shambles, When you went away,
I can still hear you; when there's nothing to say.
It may not be sorrow; its not joy that's for sure,
My days may be numbered, but my love is still pure.
And from the ashes; you'll find what remains,
The hope that you'll one day, break free from your chains.
Don't cry now my darling; just wipe off those tears,
Just try and you'll conquer; all of your fears.
Thought you had forgotten; thought you had not cared,
Thought it meant nothing; the love that we shared.
And so my sweet baby; my only true friend,
We must part ways now, we must try to pretend.
And just go on living, this life that's not whole,
Without you beside me, ain't got no more soul.
And so if in eons; we were to meet,
Would we just be strangers; who don't even speak ?
If that were to happen; please don't think me ill,
For I'll be here waiting; loving you still.
