One MoreTime

If I could hold you just one more time,
the melody of my life would once again rhyme.

I would give anything if I could have
prevented you from going away, but nothing
on this earth could have prevented you leaving  
on that dark November day.

Your photograph and a million memories
are all I have left. The days come and the days go,
the tears continue to fall as I sit here staring at
your picture on the wall.

When I see a dove freely winging across the sky,
I think of you and how high your free spirit did fly.
when I see the glistening morning dewdrops on the
roses in your little flower garden…I began to cry.

There's no denying, life without you is dark and
cold and I miss you with all my heart and soul.
Time may go on, but life without you is like
a cold winter's dawn.

If I could only hold you one more time...
my life would surely rhyme.
