Take this moment, share with me
the sweetness of the day
recognize our moments now
may sometime soon fade away.
The life we’ve spent together here
will then live in memories,
when shadows come to fill our home
on warm golden summer eves
The lake will hold the echoes
of each morning line you cast
in the ripples that will travel
on that surface of liquid glass.
The girls will sing their songs,
the trees will wave on the wind’s breathy goodbye.
Everything will seem the same,
but will be completely different,
without you by my side.
