A Memory of You


_MG_9971

 

Sitting under the maple tree

The stars glittering through

The canopy of leaves

The moonlight awash over the valley

 

Every night I dream of you

Knowing you will never be there

Your face is slowly fading

Just a memory to remember

 

I think of you

I long for you

My eyes fill with tears

My heart is still aching

It is all I got

It is all I have

Is a memory of you

My cheeks tingle in sensation

Of a hand brushing my cheeks

Of the cool evening wind

 

It was two years past

On a cold November day

I lost control of the vehicle

On the black ice

When I looked at you

I knew you were gone

Holding you in my arms

For the last time

 

I think of you

I long for you

My eyes fill with tears

My heart is still aching

It is all I got

It is all I have

Is a memory of you

 

 

Standing by your grave

I wished you farewell

Tears falling freely

Thinking of our time together

Left a rose for you

A favourite of yours

 

A mist has covered

The valley before me

With the approaching dawn

The stars becoming faint

Like the memory of you

 

I think of you

I long for you

My eyes fill with tears

My heart is still aching

It is all I got

It is all I have

Is a memory of you
