In the stillness of the night,
I am haunted by memories of you.
My love, so far away, each thought a dagger, piercing through my heart
As I long for your embrace, your sweet embrace
I see your smile,
So warm and full of life
The way your eyes would sparkle in the sun
And though we’re separated by miles and time
Your memory stays with me forever.
I hold onto these memories so tight
For fear that time will fade them from my sight
But still I dream of you each night and day
And pray that fate will bring us back together someday
Until that time, my love,
I’ll hold you close in memories that soothe my restless soul
And though we’re worlds apart,
Our love will thrive for
In my heart, you’ll always be alive.
