There was that day, that night, not so long ago,
When you held my hand just a little longer than usual,
And looked into my eyes.
I wonder what went through your mind that night.
You didn’t give me a chance to say goodbye.
Did you know I would never see your face again?
Did you know I would cry out for you to return?
Did you know I would never understand what made you leave?
You looked so happy.
Ten years have passed.
That night doesn’t seem so long ago.
I can almost hear you laughing,
Your voice so clear.
You looked so very happy.
You didn’t even say goodbye.
