It hurts so much to know,
When love means letting go.
And no one can tell me
That they’ve felt my pain.
Will someone show me how
To start over again?
Because I can’t get past you.
My head denies but my heart knows,
Your goodbyes will come.
I stare out into the empty sea,
I can feel your soft touch
In my empty hand.
Like the morning sunshine piercing my window.
Tell me I am not dreaming.
Turn back the clocks
When I first saw your smile,
And all that’s best of sparkling and bright.
When I gazed in your eyes:
to that tender light,
How heavenly it would be to see that again.
You glow in my heart
Like the flames of infinite candles.
There is no corner, no dark place,
Your warmth could not fill.
And if the world starts causing waves,
It was your devotion that made them still.
And yes you always speak to me,
In sweet honesty and truth.
Your caring heart kept out the rain,
Your warmth, the ultimate shelter.
Time can’t destroy its beauty
For, as long as your memory lives,
Years can’t erase the pleasure
That the joy of your friendship gives.
But, I don’t think I could survive
Looking into your eyes and saying goodbye.
