Around Us

Alone by the candle light she thinks of him 

Alone she eats a meal cooked just for one 

Once upon a time he would sit opposite her 

Once upon a time he would look at her 

But now he watches from eyes that no longer see 

But now he cries from eyes without any tears 



His spirit is reaching out trying to touch her 

His spirit is all that is left to remail in this reality 

She senses he is still here and looking after her 

She senses that his aura is all around her now 

her kiss seems to others to embrace just empty air 

Her kiss is felf by the soul of the man she loves still 



We never see what is hidden just out of sight 

We never see because we can never believe 

Love never dies and will be felt always forever 

Love never fades because we sense it still remains 

Around us are the souls of the ones who have passed on 

Around us they always will continue to live on in our hearts
