Would we still be holding hands
and looking out to sea?
Would we still be us,
forever you and me?
My life is now so different,
but some things remain the same.
I miss the way you held me
and the way you said my name.
But if that day had never happened,
would I just take you for granted?
The love we shared seems richer,
now you have departed.
Some days my tears flow freely
and I wonder if they’ll end…
My heart’s still crushed, quite fragile really,
can it ever mend?
You told me you’d be with me
and always hold my hand,
Then you were taken like a high tide
washes love hearts from the sand.
What’s left behind is memories,
precious days of joys.
And two replicas of both of us,
our most marvellous boys.
Each one of them a concrete link
connecting back to you,
In the words they say to me,
and little things they do.
So would we still be holding hands,
looking out to sea?
I’d like to think forever
we’d still be you and me.
