The Memory Of You

the memory of you is what sees me through
the memory of all the things that you say and do
in your absence my heart had been feeling so blue
everything in this life means nothing without you
the memory of you is what keeps me alive
the memory of your beauty is what helps me survive
without you i am now ready to take that final dive
without you i know that i will never survive
the memory of you is all that remains
the memory of you will forever haunt my brain
you are like blood that runs through my veins
with you gone there will be nothing left but pain
now i sit here and try to understand it all
losing your friendship had made me feel so small
all i want is to come to you, to beg and to crawl
before into this dark nothingness i finally fall
