Shadows in the night
I prayed that it was you
Coming in the dark
The sky was grey and blue.

Standing in the moonlight
I wait here patiently
I wonder in the night
If you’ve come back for me?

I thought I felt your hair
Brush against my face
Was I just imagining
Remembering this place?

We met here so often
We were both so very young
I remember that first kiss
When it had just begun.

The first time I saw you
I knew deep in my soul
That we’d spent our lives together
While we were growing old.

Why did you have to leave me?
It’s so hard to be alone
I sit here. I keep waiting
For you to come back home.
