slipping away

 Oh.. how selfish you are
 Have you send all your promises
 Down the drain
 The day you put a gold band in my finger
 Do you remember?
 I remember, how you said you love me

 Oh… don’t you love us anymore 
 We are frighten to be alone
 Our task, you and I started, is not over 
 What will I tell him tomorrow if he asks
 Do you remember?
 I remember, how he loves to play with you

Oh…. Stay with me
You said I can cry over your shoulder
You will be a pillar for me to lean on 
The nights when the world is silent
 Do you remember?
 I remember, how we danced under the stars

 Oh…..Where can I pick up
 Your cast away promises
 Have you send them to heaven
 The cold nights, I waited for you outside 
 Do you remember?
 I remember, how you hurried down to us

 Oh…..please tell me something
 Tell me you are wrong, tell me you won’t go
 Come back to our world my darling
 You are all we have,
 Do you remember?
 I’ll always remember, our last kiss 

 Oh….. Please stay with us,  oh…..do come back to us
 Don’t slip away; the world is waiting for you
 Don’t slip away……don’t just slip away, I need you my darling

    How could he resist such a plea. This is beautifuly expressed. Sometimes men need to be reminded of their promises.

    Thank you Richard. Sometimes when one is given an assurance of ones love and remind him of his unfinished tasks one might return back from his slipping away soul. and it really happen to one of my friends son in law. who returned after 3 months deep unconscious state. his wife had been beside him day and night mostly talking to him I was told. Thank you Richard.

    Sounds like lost or a marriage falling apart. What ever it is be strong and don't give up.
