At the moment of awareness
At the moment of awareness each morning
the first thoughts I have are you
Your image emerges without warning
sent by a heart that beats true.
Then you cling to a moment within my mind
determined there to stay
No matter what I do I'll find
you are there with me all day.
I say a prayer that I might hold you
one more time before life says goodbye
With my love I could enfold you
lift your spirits to the sky.
Upon this earth no power exists
to pull you from my heart.
The love that I had for you persists
never waning in our time apart.
Nobody ever sees the tears
that keep welling up inside
Flowing softly through the years
for the feelings long denied.
So as I lay here thinking of you
still questioning "what went wrong"?
My heart sings out "I love you"!
With a passion still lingering on.
