A thousand sunset nights
Dark shadows on the ground
Can't drown out the light
When you were around
Your voice from back then
Still whispers in my ear 
Girl, you in my sweatshirt 
The thought brings a tear
And though we're far away
In my heart you are here
I'm still praying for the day
That the sun will reappear
Something in this night sky
Tells me the storm will pass
Your almond eyes come home
Sweet girl, together at last

~Lyric Man

Note: This is a sad love write. A thousand nights can't heal the hurt or steal his hope. He can still see her as if those almond eyes had almost never left.

He will always feel those Almond Eyes, the love her heart holds. Even from a distance, the heart echos a soft melody. Sadness fills your thoughts, yet, so does hope. ~ Maia

Thanks Jan.. my hope was to write something fairly simple, yet that would get to the emotions inside of many who have had such a sad experience. Love is so incredible that its loss is almost unfathomable.
