Always

So gently the dust streams

Falling around me in shafts of golden light

Illuminating my tears

Remembering days you were mine.

We thought they'd last forever

But now I'm sad to say

I lost it all that winter night

When from me, you were taken away.

I still kneel here at your grave,

I still try to be close to you

No one else seems to realize

Just how much I will always miss you.

They tell me the pain will go away

I can tell they just don't care

I know that all they want is to keep me

From going over there.

Some days I wonder what holds me

And keeps me from you dear…

But as I cry I realize

I must be needed here.
