I gaze into your soft brown eyes, and I cry.
You look like someone I used to know,
When summer lasted all year long.
Then ice cold winter winds blew my dreams away,
And I cried.
If I could capture your essence,
I would hold it to me until the end of my days.
Just to have you near me on the longest nights,
Would surely quench the tears.
I know I’m not to blame, so why all the guilt?
There was nothing I could do or say.
You had your own life and I had mine,
You chose to throw yours away,
So why do I feel betrayed?
I opened up my heart to you,
And you took my love away.
My defences crumbled into dust,
When I held you in my arms.
But now the winter calls my name,
And I cry alone.
