If I close my eyes for a little while,
I can always see your smile.
every time I hear a voice,
My mind goes back to times before.
Laughter drifts from someplace close
And I can almost feel you near.
When the wind blows through my hair,
I feel your hands brush it back.
Looking in the mirror,
I see you standing there,
Arms wrapped around my waist,
Holding me tight.
You turn and smile,
And softly disappear.
But if I close my eyes,
I know I’ll see that smile,
Hear your voice whisper from the shadows,
And feel your touch against my cheek.
And when I wake,
You’ll still be gone,
But the memories I’ve got,
Should get me through the day.
