I was walking by the creek last night-
The grass wet from the dew-
As I sat and leaned against tree..
Sweetheart I thought of you.
I glanced up at the starry sky-
The stars looked like they knew
That here below a lonely guy
Had thoughts for only you.
I woke up in a lonely bed-
My dream life swiftly flew;
Gone was the comfort of my sleep
Where I was holding you.
I made the morning coffee-
Did the things you used to do,
Made breakfast, swept the kitchen-
With my thoughts consumed by you.
Thought I'd stop awhile and visit, girl
Since I was passing through;
And your home is right beside the way
I'll spend some time with you...
Want to tell you how I miss you-
Since that night you went away
I have spent a lot of hours..
By this lonely mound of clay.
Friends have told me you can't hear me-
But I know that isn't true-
For the only peace I ever have-
Is when I'm here with you.
Some have told me to find someone-
And to start my life anew,
No one on earth could take your place-
For my thoughts are all on you.
Live large, people!
