Love Buries Its Dead

You have erased the times that were tender

You have hidden the wounds that cut deep;

Sweet dreams of the past fade when the splendor

Dims in the twilight as the sun goes to sleep.

The haze of lost memories hovering over

Will abandon the enchantment that lost its way

And the arms of time will give hours to cover

The raw wounds that darken the day.


You will forget me, the love we once shared

Has vanished in the attempt at disguise;

The dream we once knew can't be repaired

It’s gone with the light that once lit your eyes.

Yearning for times past is beyond wanting

For all we had, and love will soon seem

An empty room with phantoms now haunting

The space in your heart that died with the dream.


I will forget you and forgive you for saying

The callous words that brought such pain;

Time moves on and the lament now playing

Has moved on to a happier strain.

I'm gone from your life, I am gone forever

The times we shared now submerged in the past;

Love buries it dead but sorrow kills never

I have forgotten your memory at last.
