lyrics

The morning sun leaks through my lids, I am awake
And well aware
You're not there,

And maybe if I close my eyes, I'll dream again
And see you near me
So dearly,

But not today; our plans have changed; the journey's done
And I cant find you
To remind you

That even though I've been away, my love for you
Will keep on burning;
And I'm still yearning for yours too,

(Worried souls surround your being.
You are confined but you don't mind;
You were a sage among us simple folk,)

And as you lie there, I try, not to cry
not to cry.

I knelt with you and saw good times;
The memories of you I could find.
Late nights of warmth and comforting.
My last goodbye in the morning.
And now I see

Wisdom and peace shown through your eyes.
A placid face was your disguise,
But I saw, I saw, I saw you,

And I promised you I would improve
And having nothing left to lose;
I tried, I tried, I tried to,

And though you never spoke a word,
Your tacit thoughts, were not observed,
But I heard, I heard, I heard you.

When I saw you in the doorway,
And I looked into your eyes just one last time,
I could see that you were anxious;
You had known me far too long to think I'd mind.

I knelt with you and saw good times;
The memories of you I could find.
Late nights of warmth and comforting.
My last goodbye in the morning.
All seven years you were there for me,
And now I see.

I hope you found your way
