Then One Day You Were Gone

I caught your glance as you walked by one day

Your deep green eyes couldn't keep me away

I introduced myself and you did the same

I guess act of whim is to blame

From everyday then one

We'd talk and talk 'till the sun was gone

Then one day I didn't see you standing there

I didn't recognize you without your hair

I asked what happened and you said

"Chemo"

I stayed by your side as you got weaker and weaker

Then one day I got a call that we wouldn't be talking anymore

I cried and cried 'till no tears remained

Then realized that fate was to blame

You will always be mine with your deep green eyes
