When Love Dies

When does love die?
When does the feeling go away?
Where does the longing go?
When does love die?

When does the pain stop?
When do the memories go away?
How long must I cry?
When does love die?

When do I forgive myself for what I did?
How do get you back again?
Will you forgive me or leave me for good?
When does love die?

Here I am old and grey, still with that feeling!
Here I lay in the dark longing for you again!
Here I sit crying over you still!
When does love die?

Forgiveness never came.
You never came back.
You are gone forever.
Love has never died!

When does love die.

Conversation In The Dark

I heard you call out to me last night.
I looked but you were not there.
I smelled your perfume in the air.
Yet no one was there.

I felt a touch last night.
I opened my eyes and you were not there.
I could smell your hair.
Yet no one was there.

I saw eyes brown and shining last night.
But you were not there.
I heard the door shut.
Yet no one was there.

I sat on the edge of the bed.
But you spoke no more.
I laid down and closed my eyes.
And still no one was there.

I dream of you last night.
You were smiling at me.
Your hand entwined in mine.
Kissing you ever so gently.

I heard your voice and raised up.
But you were not there.
I felt your touch and glowing eyes.
But no one was there.

Dawn came and was alone.
Looking at the ceiling I knew.
I knew I would never feel those things.
I would never see you and hold you close.

A tear flowed down my cheek.
I looked at your photo standing beside me.
The memories flowed into me like water over a dam.
Yet you were not here.

A single moment in time.
A day without reason or rhyme.
A day of pain and sorrow.
And you were gone.

I promise I will see you again.
Maybe not here.
Maybe not now.
But someday I will see you again.

And no one was there.
But the love in my heart.

Nothing Mattered

It was not long ago.
We use to play in the apple grove.
We ran and laughed.
We did not have a care in the world.

So many years have gone since then.
Our running days behind us.
Some days our laughs turn to tears.
And the world surrounds us with fear.

I long for the day to see you there again.
A smile on your face.
Your laughter in my ears.
You gentle touch that took me there.

Looking into your eyes.
I knew that all things are good.
Nothing else mattered.
You were my shining star.

I long to feel you close to me.
To touch me so gentle and kind.
To smell you hair that makes me think of spring.
To lay with you in the cool soft grass.

It was long ago when I loved you.
It was long ago when you loved me.
It was long ago when life was just our world.
It was long ago when nothing really mattered.

But it was just yesterday when I knew you mattered.
It was just yesterday when I found you were gone.
It was just yesterday when I cried.
It was just yesterday when it seemed by life ended.

It was long ago when you loved me.
And it was long ago when I loved you.
It was long ago when should have said I am sorry.
It was long ago and it was very far away.

I will miss you.
I will hold you in my heart.
Your memories will be ever on my mind.
And long ago was just like yesterday.
