Still Loving You
Sometimes it takes so little
and yet so much,
to say all that you wish to say,
but words remain silent.
How often I’ve wanted to,
tell you how I feel
and still I’ve only thought it in my mind -
sands in the hour glass running out of time.
She was left to wonder,
the day he went away forever,
could it be that it was really over -
that this was his final curtain call.
Do rivers really run so deep,
that one cannot ford them,
from this shore to the world beyond -
standing helpless to wave good-bye.
Can it be that now you can fly,
so much higher than any mountain top,
soar over the skies -
to reach the golden sun above.
How can it be at that final moment,
that words no longer matter,
that thoughts and looks speak volumes -
only a last kiss that lingers on.
Can it be that you’ve strayed so far,
that no one can reach you any more,
just leave one last promise -
to watch over me.
In dreams we can still dance,
that one final time,
that was left behind -
on the day your heart was stilled.
I know in my soul,
that you’ve always been so much more,
than I could ever strive to be
and loved more than I could hope to be loved.
Through the years you never failed me,
that was how it was meant to be,
always stayed beside me -
until that final moment in time.
I could say that the clock,
stopped that day,
but time never takes a holiday
and life does go on.
Now that I know you’re beyond the stars,
perhaps you’ll sing me some lullabies,
in my dreams -
whenever I think of wonderful you.
And when my days,
start becoming so few that I can count them,
I won’t have any fear -
because I know you’re waiting for me.
