Of love and loss, I sing this mournful tale, Of passion strong, now faded like the rose. My heart once full, now feels empty and pale, As memories of you refuse to close. The days drag on, without your sweet smile, My thoughts are tortured by visions of your face. I long to hold you close, just for a while, And feel the warmth of your familiar embrace. But fate has cruelly torn us both apart, And left me here to mourn our shattered dreams. Yet still, I hold your memory in my heart, And hope one day to find you in the streams. Until that day, I’ll sing this sad refrain, Of love that’s lost, but still forever reigns.
