A Flame once burned

There’s just one heart where there once was two
It’s a story of love we write on a shore
A promise of love we softly whisper

I hear you breathing softly by my side
The way I feel and what you mean to me
You are my lover, my friend.

And when I stand beside you
I can feel the pride of my heart
And its you that I’m going to stay

And now you say you want to leave
I can’t believe what I have just heard
You walk by and I fall to pieces
The clouds are all disappeared
My heart now cries a river of tears

Goodbye for the love once we shared 
We leave a flame once burned.
Bitter sweet memories we left behind.
