The Way You Danced
It was on a windy day in spring
The day I saw you with tears in your eyes
Nothing could turn me away from you
But the clouds in the skies
They reminded me of yesterday
When you said that you wouldn’t leave
Holding on the memories
The pain and sorrow you wouldn’t believe.
I remember the cries in the morning
The sighs of tiredness
Wasn’t something I was going to miss
I remember the laughter and smiles
The hugs and the kisses
The way you danced in front of me
Those are the moments I will miss.
I tell myself every waking moment
That this is where you wanted to go
To be at ease and free
Yet the heart of me so selfishly
Just wanted you beside me.
I keep with me our memories
You take with you my love
Remember that we danced endlessly
We will dance for eternity.
