Is it that we are more thoughtful
As we grow older and days remember
Or can it be we think of mortality
Of ones past, present, maybe future.
It isn’t that I dream away my days
I’ve had so many good years of life
I still have family around to enjoy
Even with the loss of a loving wife.
Maybe that kept me from reaching out
To take hold of the hand you offered
It wasn’t that I took it all lightly
Maybe time and circumstance deterred.
That doesn’t mean my mind doesn’t see
Images that between lovers are shared
Helping the lonely hours tick slowly by
I can only hope you know that I cared.
A beautiful smile, soft skin and caress
Moments never too far from my thought
Too many take no note of things said
I cherished shared moments we sought.
The songstress plays with such emotion
A heart that carries such melodious word
I can only hope you know that I remember
That my heart echos the feeling I heard.
