Life isn’t the Same Without You

Right from the time I lost  you

Life just hasn’t been the same,

I wish that I had one more chance

to see your smile again.

The sun still rises with each dawn,

night still follows day,

but there’s always something missing

ever since you went away

The tide comes in, the tide goes out,

the sands of time pass by…

…but thoughts of you will never fade

I hope you’re peaceful wherever you are

Life has surely lost it’s sparkle

The world often feels blue

But what gives me strength and hope

is the precious memory of you.
