For Love 1

Written by: Gina Young

looking on as u prepare to leave
i know u see the doubt flashing in my eyes
i know u love me
but im not always convinced u will come home

looking on as u prepare to leave
hope is for stolen moments
dreams are for healing the heart
and ur words are the sweet water that hydrates this body

looking on as u prepare to leave 
u told me i was the most wonderful thing
u said u would take me everywhere with u, in some small way
i am breaking to pieces and going with u in bits

looking on as u prepare to leave
the screen between us is getting thicker
with fewer places that closeness can seep through
but i carry your face in memory, ur heart in my hands

looking on as u prepare to leave
i know this will be the hardest part yet
a test of our will, our trust, commitment and yes, our love
but i will still be looking when u are gone
