Understanding Loss

My arms still hold the memory
Of hugging you tight
My lips still feel the tingle
That your kisses excite
I still smell the fragrance
Of your soft perfume
Each time I come home
And enter our room
Memories of the love we shared
Still fill my dreams
Then I wake up in agony
Wanting to scream
Once again it hits me and
I melt inside
The night that you were taken
Part of me died

I’d offer all I have
For another minute with you
Just to kiss and hold you close
A or moment two
Whispering sweet nothings into
Each other’s eyes
Cuddled close together till
The sun fills the sky

Speak again the words I cried
As you slipped away
Whispering my love for you
Pleading you stay
I held you for oh so long
I couldn’t let go
So much more I’d wished to say
To have you know
Now every time I think of you
My head starts to spin
Wishing you were in my arms
Chin to chin
Whispering sweet nothings into
Each other’s eyes
Cuddling close together till
The sun fills the sky

I’d offer all I have
For another minute with you
Just to kiss and hold you close
A moment or two
Whispering sweet nothings into
Each other’s eyes
Cuddled close together till
The sun fills the sky

My arms so miss the feeling
Of hugging you tight
My lips still want the tingle
Your kisses excite
Once again it hits me
And I melt inside
The night that you were taken
A part of me died

I’d offer all I have
For another minute with you
Just to kiss and hold you close
A moment or two
Whispering sweet nothings into
Each other’s eyes
Cuddled close together till
The sun fills the sky
