The Memories Stay

Post by Former Member » 06/07/03 15:36

There is a candle it burns right well
Shining bright in my heart it dwells
But the wind it came strong and stout
And blew that bright burning candle out

My heart stopped beating when the phone rang
I heard the news as the salt tears sang
The blast it shook me to the bone
For now he'll never be coming home

I see him coming through the door
I hear his steps stomp across the floor
I hear his voice whisper soft and clear
As my fingers feel my hot wet tears

In the window a candle burns bright
Calling him home in the dark night
The pain may fade as the years go by
But the memories stay in my heart nearby

Somerled- that has to be the saddest thing I've read.
This part especially broke my heart--
Quote:
But the wind it came strong and stout
And blew that bright burning candle out
Reminds me of this little guy--
Just waiting in the dark all alone.

So SAD!
