Have you ever driven down a road?
Just to drive with no destination in mind.
The road seems to go on and on
With no stopping point
Life is like that long road going on and on
Not knowing when it’s going to end.
But still you strive for another tomorrow
Hoping that in the long run
Everything will turn out alright
Just like the road though
It must come to an end.
When we danced
I noticed how your hair sparkled
And how your eyes
Were more beautiful than the stars above
I noticed how you moved
So gracefully to the music
I noticed your smile
So wide and bright
It reminded me
Of a cool summer sunset
Glistening off the face of the water
To just come out
And say you are beautiful
Would be an insult to you
Cause just to say
You are beautiful
Is not enough to say
You really are.
A NIGHT TO REMEMBER
As you lit the candle on the table
I watched the glowing light
Bounce off your face
It was the loveliest sight
I’ve seen in such a long time.
Your brown eyes were glowing
Like the stars in the sky
Your hair so beautiful and curly sparkled
And when you smiled
It hit me in such a strange way.
A way in which it felt like
Butterflies were fluttering inside my stomach
For some reason my heart
Felt like a magnet
And your smile was drawing me to you
I realized how very lucky I was
To have you by my side
Today I can’t stop thinking about you
Because the angel I took out last night
Is now the angel in my heart tonight?
YOU’RE STILL HERE
I close my eyes
And listen to the music
That once was ours.
My heart grows warm inside
And I realize you’re still here with me.
I still feel your soft touch
When you take my hand in yours
As we slowly walk
Out to dance in the living room.
Some experts say that time heals all wounds
But my heart seems to grow stronger for you
With every passing year
I just can’t let you go.
It took me a long time
To find a woman like you
You were so alive and energetic
Always on the go.
We had so much fun
In the ten short years we were together.
Before we found out you were sick
My love for you grew stronger
It hurt me that I couldn’t help
I just watched you wither away
Right down to your bones
Cancer took you away from me
But tonight I can feel you
In my arms dancing with me once again
I know you’re still here
I can feel you in my heart.
