Ashes and Coal

I cannot forget, I cannot let go,
Ever since we met you're all I know.

It's a burning passion that stabs like a knife,
I want to be with you for the rest of my life.

Every little moment of each and every day,
I want to look in your beautiful eyes and say,

I love you with all my heart,
It's not knowing that's tearing me apart.

I need your love, your warmth, your touch,
I never knew I'd want you this much.

Seeing my world in the arms of another,
Would mean pain like no other.

Baby, you're my world, my heart and soul,
This flame will never burn to ashes and coal.

    We need more declarations like this. My only hope is that there are no more ashes, just a really good fire. :) Excellent piece!!!
