It’s been four long years since you’ve passed away
I remember the time as though it were yesterday
The memories of you they do not fade
We are always together, no need to be afraid
You’re with me through both day and night
I sometimes wake at night, in case I might
Feel your tender touch or catch a sight
Was that a fleeting glance or trick of light?
I see you in the streets amongst the busy crowd
I see you in my dreams amongst the misty shroud
I feel you’re presence when I’m all alone
Could that be you calling when I hear the phone?
You may be gone, but never far away
I hope you’re safe and well, for this I pray
It’s been four long years this is true
It’s been four long years of missing you
I hope and pray that there will come a time
When we meet again and you’ll be mine
