In this place where you and I once were

Hidden beneath the piles of their memories

I can still see you

I can still hear you

It's impossible to let what never was escape me

Because I still see you sitting there so perfectly

Your smile, now so many years old,

Is still so beautiful

I can't let this sweet memory escape me

The fear of losing you is too great

Because although we never were

I can't shake the feeling that a part of you was mine

These faded pictures are black and white

As everything that ever was escapes me

In my final resting hour I shall smile

For the two of us

And for the piece of you that you left in my care
