The first few bars of that melody
Brought teardrops to my eyes
Memories flowed from history
And I stifled my unheard cries

Words tender and soft to hear
A song from a time now past
Lyrics we shared once together
To signify how we would last

A chorus we once sang together
A three minute song never ends
For this heart still broken by a promise
Of two parted to become friends

I wonder does your radio play the same tune
Do you become as nostalgic as I?
As the song fades from the night
I lower my head and cry.


------------------
For sometimes when the Darkness falls, we must surrender, take what is ours, and give what we can, and always remember love is somewhere waiting...

So melancholy! I loved it. Your style and mine seem so similar. I find it very easy to pick up your meter as I read.
