I know I can feel your gaze penetrating through me,
it's your shadow dancing within the shifting winds.
As I take a step into the dreary night,
it's your footsteps I see in the wet grass.
The familiar sent of your smoke,
still lingers where you stood.
Longing for me to take your hand,
I must tell you that I cannot follow.
Though you're gone,
my life still drives on.
I'll move on,
for the love of every new day.
Savoring every breath,
until my last.
my heart you will forever own.
my soul is mine
and mine alone.
I miss your touch,
your tender voice-
whispering of undying love
Those memories carry me through every day,
in and out of the dark and lonely nights.
Just know that I have given you my heart,
I will not take your hand.
With every passing hour,
you will always and forever hold my love.
