Faded Words

by Dennis   Mar 3, 2008

Tomorrow's promises remained in yesterday
Faded words she once meant yet not enough to stay
Affectionate gestures soon turned on to another
Treasured times with her I never will recover

A misplaced fondness...a misplaced trust
Days of happiness now turned to dust
How many more times until I learn
That flame of passion can so often burn

She traced such feelings I thought I'd lost
Melted my hard image encased in frost
Said she hadn't felt this way in years
Now her change of heart brings me to tears

The hours they go by but she's still there
She's in my thoughts...she's everywhere
She's locked up in my head...some unattainable dream
Running deep into my soul on a sentimental stream

She's crushed my confidence and left me sad
The emptiness inside...it hurts so bad
I try to forget about her...to say goodbye
But she's one of those memories that just won't die
