"A Lifetime Gone"

holding hands in bed



"A lifetime Gone"

    
One day they met
Was love at first sight
Spent their time together
Most every day and night


They were so young
And full of life
One day he ask her
To be his wife


She was so happy
She started to cry
He looked in her eyes
And asked her why


She said she had to leave
Tears rolled down her cheeks
Telling him please don't worry
I'll only be gone a few weeks


The years went by
Quick as a wink
So much faster
Than we think


He never forgot
When he saw her last
So long ago
Far in the past


If he could hold her
Just one more time
And remember the feeling
When he could call her "Mine"


As the years went by
The older he got
She stayed in his heart
He never forgot


He awoke one day
Wracked with pain
She was holding his hand
Once again


She looked at him
And started crying
For they both knew
That he was dying


He never did ask
Where she had been
As it didn't matter
He was losing her again


She was holding his hand
When he took his last breath
Yet he still loved her
Right up to his death.
