If you were here.
If you were here with me, if you were here with me. I wouldn't cry myself to sleep, in through my window you would creep. Lying next to me humming so softly, you'll fill my head with wondrous dreams. I'd give everything to have you here with me, once more.
Can I believe the words you said, was it a dream, just in my head. You said you were moving on from here and I was not a welcome guest. You said it was all just for fun, how could those words have come from the one who swore he'd love me to the end? Was I fool in love?
A part of me wants to cast all thoughts of you away. A voice inside says breath and think again. Love has been known in its protective nature to make a stranger out of the object of its fierce devotion. What if this separation is an act of sacrifice?
I'll put away my fear and push aside my inner caution. I'll come across the ocean, travel many miles to have you look me in the eyes and ask me to leave or pull me closer to you. Kiss away my tears and say you've needed me everyday since you went away.
Then lying close to you with my head upon your chest I'll hear you say those words which cause my heart to melt and I'll say them back to you, my love. I'll say them back to you, my love.
