The first time that you held my hand,
You said you won’t let go.
How long would your forever last,
Alas I did not know.
And every time you held my hand,
You somehow touched my soul.
The broken fragments of my life,
You healed and made them whole.
Now put my hand on yours today,
So I can feel your touch.
And hold me close before you leave,
I do not ask for much.
You promised love till I would die,
You filled my days with fun.
And as you leave and go away,
Maybe my days are done.
What is the song without the bird?
Or leaves without the tree?
What are the clouds without the sky?
Or waves without the sea?
What is my life when you’re not there?
A darkened endless night,
And every time you hold my hand,
Then everything seems bright.
