I Remember Still..

 I Remember Still..

I remember still
The day you left,
The way my heart
Broke in my chest.
The way the tears
Filled up my eyes,
I filled my mind
With no's and why's.
I did not want
To let you go.
But I did.
And said, "I know."
One more kiss
Was not enough
But I promised you
That I'd be tough.
That night I did
Not cry at all,
Just waited, patient
For your call.
You called and said
You loved me still.
I smiled and said
I always will.
I did my best
To make it through.
I knew it was
Much worse for you.
I wrote you each
And every day.
There was so much
I had to say.
I did not want
You to forget
Any moment
Since we had met.
The days went by
And I was strong...
Crying can't be
All that wrong
When late at night
I'd hear your voice
Then realize it
Was just a noise,
I'd hold my heart
And say a prayer,
Wishing you
Were really there.
I'd try again
To fall asleep,
But instead I
Could only weep.
Now here we are
And yet I cry.
I'm proud of you,
I guess that's why
You reached your goal
That was so high.
I can't stop thinking
"How lucky am I?"
>From here on out
I'll always have you.
For what it's worth,
You'll have me too.
Sometimes it will
Be tough, I know
To say goodbye,
Each time you go.
But when you come back
There I will be,
Waiting for my sailor
To come home to me.
