Heavenly tears framing a sad scene
One last kiss
A long, loving embrace
Never wanting to let her go
A sadness soaking into my crying soul

My mind slips back to the night we met
Our eyes meeting across a loud, crowed room
She was..
Such a beautiful vision, she snared my heart
Laughter…dancing…and then room 238
Loving embraces,
Long…slow…tender kisses
Making love
Waking up to sunshine…and her smile
Burnt eggs and toast…terrible coffee
A long, lazy walk in the park
dancing in the rain

Then out of the blue…her phone rings
Crying…frowning…a cold wind blows
A confused, hurt look on her face
She said…”I have to go”
She needed to be sure, she had thought it was over
But now…she just didn’t know
Confused…lost…hurt…she had to go
And me?
My head knows she has to go
She needs to be sure one way or the other
But Lord, my heart…doesn’t want her to go
Will she ever come back…to me?

Heavenly tears framing a sad scene
one last kiss, a long, loving embrace
Never wanting to let her go
A lonely sadness soaking into my crying soul
And then…goodbye
