I love to sit in the church pew
With you next to me,
Paying attention to words not few,
I feel so good and new…

When we walk in a dark night
With steady guided steps,
Though the moon is shy to be light
You are more than bright…

I remember the laughter we shared
When you took me back to childhood memories,
Days when we less cared
About love, yet we fared…

It’s hard to say bye now.
Though I cover it with smiles,
I pretend a bow
To save my skin from life’s paw…

But for our dreams we say bye,
Knowing we still have a chance
To never again ask why
Or worry over long goodbyes…

Goodbye my dear…
