Something So Softly

She looked up as something rolled softly down her cheek,
He didn't know what to do, should he wipe away the tears?
Her hand was now by her face, she slowly touched her cheek,
Such sadness reflected in her eyes, he knew why…

It was cold and they both shivered as the wait was becoming unbearable,
Why now? It wasn't fair, only a couple of months, but what is?
She didn't want to cry but they just came, like strangers to her eyes
They fell, ever so slightly.

Saying good bye was the only thing, easy, right?
As there lips touched they both knew it was for the last time.
Never again would she see his smile, his quiet brown eyes.

In bed so close she could feel him, together so perfect!
Her finger traced little circles on his back, he smiled
Even though she couldn't see it she felt it, leaning close,
Her lips - his ear. She whispered so softly.

He felt her touch soft and warm, he loved it - she whispered.
'If I lay here
if I just lay here
would you lie with me and just forget the world?'

He smiled – 'Let's just forget the world'


A/N: Please review it would mean a lot to me.
Used the chorus from Snow Patrols 'Chasing Cars' it just felt right!
