"Don't take life to seriously, nobody makes it out alive anyways"-Unknown

I wish I could go back to that place.
I wish I could go back to that day,
the day I said goodbye to your beautiful face,
back to the place where the mistakes were made.
If only I could still remember, the memories are fading.
I wish I could go back to the days which I loved.

I still am trying hard to fill my life with love.
I still have fun when I travel from place to place,
even though you aren't with me. But the time we had together was fading,
and I wasn't prepared for those last days
we spent together. We said goodbye too soon and I still regret those mistakes I made.
I still miss your joyful face.

Each time I saw you a smile lit up my face.
Each time I think of you I hope you still know that I love
you. I hope you'll forgive me for the mistakes I made.
I miss the good times we had together in our special place.
I regret saying goodbye that day.
Each time I remember that day, I think about how I said goodbye to you, leaving my dreams behind, my smile fading.

I miss my bright, vibrant smile which has now faded.
I miss that smile I used to have upon my face.
Each new day.
I remember how much you love
me. I know that you too miss our favorite place.
I miss my days of innocence, when the mistakes were smaller that I made.

I don't know if you understand how I felt after those mistakes were made.
I don't know if you know how fast the memories fade.
As I think of that wonderful place,
I realize any place would be amazing if I had you with me, if I could see your face.
I want to remember how there was so much love but
I don't know how long I'll remember that last day.

There were tears falling from my face that day.
There were those regrets I had for the mistakes I made.
I'll always know how much you can do through the simpleness of love,
so I'll share mine. I'm not going to forget what you did for me with yours, that memory won't fade.
I won't forget that caring face.
There were memories filling my head of you and I on that day, in our favorite place.

I've learned a lot from your love. And I treasure it every day, because you're gone now, in a different place.
I've learned from the mistakes I've made. Seeing your face reminds me, but I still know there will always be more I'll make.
I've learned that I'll remember that day, it will be in my mind forever, I won't let it fade.
