I ran up the hill, but you weren't there;
To lay beside me and watch the sky change hues.
I stood in our Eden, but you weren't there;
To take my hand in yours and tell what each flower meant.
From the roof, I watched the city twinkle, but you weren't there;
To give me the taste of my first love.
I was in the seat right beside yours, but you weren't there;
For our little conversations that kept me going through the day.
I watched the ocean, as wide as our regrets, but you weren't there;
To hold me close and whisper "it's okay."
I sat beside you, as you eternally slept, and you were finally there;
So close to me, and yet, so far away.
