Loving You (Haunting Me)

I never understood why you would stare,
Even now those brown eyes still haunt my dreams.
Those memories that I try not to fear,
Are my dark nightmares of what could have been.

You will never hold me as you used to,
Your lips will not whisper my name again.
The sweet word 'love' will never hold more truth,
But the sound of your voice will stay the same.

This deep-seated guilt is all that I own,
To remind me of the mistake I made.
Nights by the water forever are sewn,
Reconnaissance of how all things good fade.

I loved you in a way no one else could.
I loved you in the way no one else would.
