I’ve traveled all over this country,
Searching far and wide,
To find someone who understands,
The things I hold inside,
Finally the search was over,
After many, many years,
Yet now she’s buried in the ground,
Along with all the tears.
While she slowly slipped away,
The pain just grew and grew,
And as the storm clouds gathered,
That’s when I found you,
A life preserver in a sea of pain,
With emotion that’s only grown,
Two souls that finally found their mates,
No longer drifting alone.
All the places that we’ve been,
Get lost inside the miles,
And when you left you took my heart,
And with you went my smiles,
Looking at this gravesite now,
Is a very painful sight,
We were shown the things we were,
To ease the dreams at night.
Some never get to travel,
Some will never read a book,
In the shadow of what we found,
Are the dreams which we mistook,
It seems love lives inside us,
Yet is it something we need to hide,
But I’m forever grateful to you,
Even if the love, is held inside.
. only you
