I sit here in my rocking chair
Watching the world go by
All alone left with my thoughts
Feeling so down but unable to cry.
Wrapping a blanket around my shoulders
Memories flash before me but disappear
Trying so hard to stay focused
A face in the distance starts to become clear.
A gorgeous smile forming before me
Deep brown eyes make my heart melt
A strange feeling passes through my body
A feeling of love which I once felt.
I know that smile and those eyes
They belong to a face I formerly knew
To a man who took my hand into his own
Whom I loved unconditionally and he loved me too.
Sadness grips me making me shiver
As I sit rocking in my rocking chair
I feel so low but I’m not sure why
Memories flash before me but disappear.
