When days are long and missing you
Is all my mind can seem to do,
I sense you, as you guide my way,
To cleanse the sorrow from my day.
You are the warmth that hugs my heart
When sadness tears my world apart;
I feel you gather up my strength,
To carry me that extra length.
When I retire at night in bed
With thoughts of you around my head,
I like to think it’s you I find
When comfort soothes this tired mind.
I know that when I listen hard,
When I let go and drop my guard,
When I “allow” myself to see ...
Your recollections strengthen me.
They greet me like a well known friend,
Those memories, that never end,
Those pictures, sounds and scents of you,
Come tumbling in to see me through.
A spark of laughter plays my mind,
Your eyes and smile in slow rewind,
Your loving memories fill my heart,
For never will they truly part.
You’re here beside me every day,
You’re in my thoughts and seldom stray,
The ties that bound us from the start,
Will carry on within this heart.
When I wish you were by my side,
When missing you won’t be denied,
I’m thankful as you fill my thoughts,
With mem’ries of forget-me-nots.
