Dawn has come upon me once again.
Shadows melt and become dancing crystals of beautiful light,
and as I watch silently in my bed all alone
your haunting memories in vain I try to fight.
Then a thought soundlessly escaped me
drifting back through endless time.
back to a morning...
...You nudge me. Asking if it is time for you to go.
There are countless times I can recall
of how I longed for you to stay.
Just us inside our cocoon,
touching, dreaming, making endless love throughout the day.
But I knew back to your lifes reality
without me was where you were to head.
Babe, did you know that you would always
fall asleep before I ever could.
I'd gently touch your body,
every line I knew so well.
We'd lay naked side by side
and I secretly told you of the things
I dreamed I never could.
The words I whispered so dearly,
locked forever away into your heart.
Years from now you'd hear them
and remember of how I felt toward you then.
I love and miss you still completely,
the loss of you, the space you left,
may never go away.
So up my window goes.
A satisfied smile slowly creeps across your face.
"I'll see you later babe," suddenly fades to gray.
I watch your back in bitter sadness
as you quickly sride away.
I bow my head and shed a shatteringly painful tear,
my eyes already searching helplessly,
while I watch you disappear.
I caught a beam of morning sun
glinting in your hair.
I raised my hand to wave goodbye,
and silently called your name.
I heard the motor start to cough,
I tried to catch my breath.
You simple couldn't see,
without a shred of emotion,
how easily you forever walked away from me.
Yet I really cannot see how loving you
so much could have ever have been a sin.
You'll always hold the one true key.
I guess I always knew it from right then,
that morning was to be the last
I'd ever hold you near.
The world outside has come awake,
and the sound of your car
has finally faded away.
I shut and locked that window tight,
trying to protect myself from feeling such desperate pain.
I look once more out over the ledge,
but there is only heavenly sunshine
once where you have been.
