If I should never return
Let your mind turn from grief
And your eyes be dry of tears.
Although it may be hard to understand
Why I am no longer part of your life
I hope you never think
That you were not the biggest part of mine.
I had to go and find my path
And if it meant losing everything I hold dear
Then that was to be my fate from the first day that I breathed.
Without you the life I lived would have had no meaning,
And even though the loss of me may seem pointless and bitter
Please look at the good times that we shared
And know that my heart only beat when nestled safely in the palm of your hand.
Despite the fact that I am gone away
And I can no longer reach out in the dark to feel you next to me,
I promise to reside always in your deepest thoughts.
When you think of our life together
May the thought of me grace your lips with a smile
And if you must cry
Let the tears you taste be bittersweet
Because bitter is the pain of loss
But sweet I hope my memory
Will always be to you.
