Song Lyrics Contest

In some spare time musing today I threw a rough draft together to give an idea for the lyrics to my contest. So far I've moved one to round two out of 4. Guys and Gals, give yourself an inspiration with any write and melodies, though they can do some of the work also need some passion so don't neglect that. My inspiration was a neighbor's beautiful talented artist/poet daughter was killed in a murder suicide at only 25 years old - 5 years ago. Her Mom still can't sleep - who the heck could - so these lyrics (rough draft) were tossed together this afternoon. I still have to work on making sense of it and refrains etc.----but this is the kind of thought that I'm looking for and the subject matter is wide open, use your imagination. You can write about love, family/love, loss, God, or anything to make it real.
I look at the fields now covered with snow,
your footsteps are hidden below
and just like the memories that linger inside
they tread lightly on my soul.
Forever the nighttime will drag through the hours
with prayers that one morning the sunlight will show
you were always right there, with a toss of your hair
.....and those smiles to hold.
I don't know where forever will find you
I don't know what the future will bring
I only know you are are there and I'm always right here
Where the sand and the sun and my heart awaits
(THINK AND REACH INTO A PASSION YOU HAVE LIVED AND WRITE TO IT)
Play the song to it and see what I mean. You can do as well or better with your own words.
