The Day I Knew

February 5, 2011

Memories burn deeply in my soul
Dreams of love and tender times
Words now unspoken
Dance faintly in my mind
I yearn to keep them alive
As they start to drift away
Knowing I must set them free
Silent tears I cannot cry
Is the day I knew my heart died

Would You….

February 5, 2011

Would you shed a tear for me

were I to disappear?

Could you imagine a time or place

when you couldn’t feel me near?

If that day were to be would you pull me back,

or would you let me slip your grasp?

Would you hold me in your heart

or would you let my memory fade away?
