Memories of You

How much you rue the fact that you didn't get enough moments to tell a person how wonderful they are.

Memories of You

Buried in a pale, dusty box were memories of you

Just a glance and a flurry of thoughts come through

How unexpected was the way you arrived in my life

How reclusive was I when it was all new

I still remember vividly the day we first met

The way you were engrossed in your book in that coffee shop

And I came over to talk as I had read it too

Your smile, the most electrifying thing I had ever seen

"This is gonna go far" at that moment I knew

You brought me out of my shell, made me a better man

And how ardently I wish I could've done the same for you

Each day with you was so perfect, I sometimes envy myself

I still have a hard time believing how time flew

And here I am, standing at your grave

Aching for one more moment, one last look, one last kiss

Holding this box, this pale, dusty box with memories of you.
