Whispers in the night - lyrics to Life story by Peter White

Whispers in the night, longing for your ears To drown every fear But the sorrow sleeps with me tonight. Whispers in the night, saying a bitter prayer, Gone the summer cheer, Only cold snow fills me deep inside. Remembering the fun-filled laughter, the dreams we shared; Together we made it: built that home of kids and bricks. Remembering the hurtful wards, the chemo and meds, That instant you were mine, then reality killed me: us was history. Whispers in the night, saying our favorite prayers Seeing you everywhere Your smell still lives painfully in this house Whispers in the night: "Oh why not a few more years?" There is still so much to share! Nobody to hug and care for life! Remembering the fun-filled laughter, the dreams we shared Together we made it: built that home of kids and bricks. Remembering the hurtful wards, the chemo and meds, That instant you were mine, then reality killed me: us was history.
