He Sang...

We held hands for a moment
and he led me on
of what we spoke
I remember not,
but it was beautiful to me.

He let me go
and I reached for him
as we sat under the tree.

And he sang
of a life for us
which might never have been
of roses flourishing
birds chirping in paradise
He held me close
as I closed my eyes.
And he sang…

Together we were
again for a time.
I missed him so much
I told him I needed him
The last thing I wanted was for him to go.

He let go of me
but I held him close.
The pain that I felt, he'd never know.

And he sang
of a future for us
which might never have been
of children running 'round
and him close at hand
He held me close
as I said goodbye to my man
and he sang...
