and as the years slip slowly through my hands i trace your face often in the soft white sands but wonder if the memory is more what i want you to be and less of what you were in reality and here i offer my rose to the memory of you and pray that one day we can start anew with you being just who you are without memories faded by distances far no longer feeling the need to trace your face in the sand i will trace your face with the touch of my hand
I never noticed or documented the time or the place When I stopped seeing anything else but your face each time my mind wanders from conversations with others not differentiating between friends, family or lovers
I see you in empty rooms and at an over-crowded show At bus stops, in hallways – wherever I go I whisper your name but you don’t seem to hear I call out in my sleep – but I know you’re not near
The conversations we had I replay over and over again Trying to relive the happiness and drown out the pain I keep telling myself what a fool I have been But I cannot block out what my heart has seen
So I live in a world where your face takes precedence Over everything else that seems to make sense And I wonder if you ever call out my name And when closing your eyes do you play the same game
Or have you long forgotten the “we” that once was Made way for real people or replaced just because Love has a natural course that it follows And once its over there will be no tomorrows
And someday I’ll close my eyes and you’ll be gone But until then the memories linger on And your face is with me wherever I go But your body and soul left a long time ago.
