Just A Memory

October 24, 2008

Three years have come and gone
Yet the pain remains so strong
Why did you have to go so young?
The water wasn’t that deep
But still, you began to sink
I couldn’t grasp you, I couldn’t revive you
Why didn’t I realize the words that couldn’t be sung?
For now, the pain has only begun
At last, I tried to say I was “sorry”
But the words couldn’t escape my tongue

You’re just a memory
Gone so young
Some don’t understand
But you’re still clear
Always in my heart
I just want you here
Don’t you see?
You’re still a part of me

Are you in heaven? It’s been too long
Seven years have come and gone
Yet the pain remains so strong
Why did you have to go so young?
All I want is just one more night
I promise you, I will hold you tight
No more pain to pull you away
Why does it have to happen this way?

No one will ever take your place
I close my eyes and all I see…
Goodbye my little honey bee
You were there; your face so dear
No chance to say goodbye
It was your turn to fly

You’re just a memory
Gone so young
Some don’t understand
But you’re still clear
Always in my heart
I just want you here
Don’t you see?
You’re still a part of me

Tonight I’ll sit, tonight I’ll wait
Here I am; I promise I won’t be late
Sixty years have come and gone
Yet the pain remains so strong
Why did you have to go so young?
Our journey had just begun
…only a few more days…
A couple more months…
One more year…
That’s all it’ll take
You know, just as well as I that
I can’t fake my missing you

You’d be so proud…
Your grandson just turned eight
So strong, so true to his faith
Three more years and she’ll graduate
Your granddaughter, well
She went on her first date
Me? I’m doing alright
Another wrinkle won’t bother me

You’re just a memory
Gone so young
Some don’t understand
But you’re still clear
Always in my heart
I just want you here
Don’t you see?
You’re still a part of me

My years have come and gone
Yet the pain remains so strong
Why did you have to go so young?
But I’m ready now, my little honey bee
Together forever…
Just you and me
We’re just a memory
