Do not stand here by my side, I am not here, I am in your mind. Do not stand there, weak and sad, Not a thing can bring me back. Do not stand here by my side, I am not here, I have left you behind. Not a thing can bring me back, Not even a salty tear, but trust me, there is nothing to fear. As you stand here, right by my side, I see the pain you cannot hide, All the moments, those times you cried; The pain I’ve caused still engulfs your mind. I used to stand here, right by your side, But great memories fill my mind. We stood together, strong and free, It was Love, just you and just me. I will forever stand here, right by your side, I am that chill running down your spine, The voice that guides you, that rules your mind; That stole your heart, and left you behind. You come and stand here, right by my side, Every year you come, and each time you cry. I see that pain you cannot hide, Yet our great memories fill your mind. Memories of when we stood together, strong and free, It was Love, only you and only me. For five years ago, on this day, we should have wed, But God came down to earth and took me instead. My gravestone says that I belong to you, And there is nothing else as true; For one day, we will stand together, strong and free, It will be Love, just you and only me…
