The sun is setting much earlier each day
Sooner than we both feared
Although you shrug off the chill with your laughter
The darkness soon will be here
There are days I awake in a dim fog
Though I know there is light
I smile with you to maintain appearance
And to conceal my fright
I needed you.
I loved you.
I will remember as much as I can.
Are you taking this seriously now?
Are you hearing my voice?
Comprehension of the matter at hand
You’re leaving me with no choice.
We have come to a desperate place and
Night is conquering day
So let me look on you just a bit longer
Before this all fades away
The days are here when there’s no conversation
I know the end is at hand
So I watch as you go through the motions
As if you misunderstand
We should plan for the impending future
Time’s a cruel saboteur
But each day’s opportune for a delay
I know we’d rather defer
I will commit as much as I can.
When I tell you you’re lovely
I mean what words can’t contain
So let me behold you
for too soon I know
I’ll never see you again
