How Could I know

How could I know,
that you were there but though
somehow I knew my mind had flown.
Perhaps we should have known.

The day before I sang our song
To tell you of my love .I was still so strong.
And then the pain came, in the dark of night
and I fell, brought down my chest was tight

My heart had gone and in one last breath
I seemed to know I was near death
But you were beside me there
Somehow I knew you were

You kept that death away
You gave your strength day after day
