Forever girl

When it’s time to give in and love’s run its course

When words fail and night’s claim another divorce

Looking back through the prism of joy and regret

Try as hard as you like you will never forget


Never forget the first kiss, the first touch

The first night of high passion, wrapped up in her love

When promises made were both real and sincere

When the world stopped, your heart stopped, as

You drew her near


When your heart stopped and heaven felt ever so close

Does the memory not linger, does love have a ghost?

You might think that it does when the shadows prevail

On her birthday, at Christmas, in cards that you’ve saved


Cards that meant so much not so long ago

When she told you she loved you with kisses galore

When she told you forever was far too short a time

But if that’s all there is - it’ll do for a while


When it’s time to give in and love’s run out of steam

Some men fight for their corner, some throw the towel in

Some men muster the power to move heaven and earth

To recover, their lover, their forever girl
