the clouds that gather in my heart
replace the sunshine there
because i sense we've grown apart-
do you, my love, still care?
we were so very much in love-
at least i was with you.
i thought you felt the same as i,
and deep commitment, too,
but it seems to me you've changed-
there's something in your eyes
that seeems to find the perfect time
to say those last good byes.
i love you more than life itself,
and yet a love that grows
in just one heart is doomed to fade-
like petals on a rose.
but if i have just memories
of you, they too will fade,
and sunshine will dissolve the clouds
that losing you has made.
