Remember

Remember the golden warmth of summer sun
Remember the wind would rush as we would run
Remember the big oak tree in the backyard
...you lost your grip and fell down hard

 

Remember the way she held you as you cried

So tender - was nothing broken but your pride

 

I remember… I was there

 

Remember the girl you once walked home from school
...you stammered twice and felt a fool
Remember the candles on your wedding day
...her face said all there was to say

 

September - the day she turned and walked away

Dying embers, the broken promises remain

 

(I remember…)

 

 Remember the face that smiled through your tears

Remember the grace that's held you through the years
Remember the only one whose love is true
Forever the open arms still wait for you
