Love From Afar

by Tara   May 7, 2007

I remember your touch, your warm embrace
Your lips touching mine, your hand on my face.
I remember your smile, saved just for me
Always, forever, and meant to be.

I remember that day I let you go
My heart said to love you, my mind said no
I set you free, for years you tried
To get me back, and by your side.

I would not listen, stubborn and scared
I stayed away, but always cared
And kept your love locked in my heart
Every day we spent apart.

And then on one fated day
I realized and had to say
It was a mistake to let you go
I wanted so bad for you to know

That I still loved and I still cared
Living each day with our memories shared
My heart, my love, it didn't fade
Please let me fix this mess I've made

It was too late, you'd let me go
As your feelings died, I'd let mine grow
Am stuck here now, wishing you
Could only feel the same way too

I miss our love, and our shared days
Regretting always that we parted ways
In my dreams, I'll hold you tight
To help me get through each long night

You'll always be the one I love, cherish, and adore
I'll love you for all times, no less just more
And every time I wish on a star
I'll think of you, and love from afar.
