From Where You Stand

From Where You Stand

  As you stand so close to me

can you hear the sound?

The sound of my heart breaking

as your eyes tell me goodbye.

     As you stand so close to me

     Can you feel the cold?

     The cold invading where

     passions fire use to be.

As you stand so close to me

can you see the tears?

The tears of pain where

tears of happiness use to be.

     As you stand so close to me

     can you feel my touch?

     The touch that would bring

     you to ecstasy and back.

As you stand so close to me

Can you not think of all the memories?

The memories of the loved we shared.

The tears that fell. Our laughter's sound.

How are bodies touched all those nights?

Are you really ready to say goodbye to us?

I feel this pain inside calling me away from the darkness to maybe taste the light one more time. I don't feel I will ever understand goodbye. I have just started to believe in hello. Once again Leslie, beautiful.
