Words Unspoken

by Aeonzi

These words lie heavy on my heart
They keep me from living on
Words I needed to say to you
When I knew you’d soon be gone

I took your little hand in mine
Held your body to my heart
In this silence we remained
Till I knew we had to part

To weak to watch you leave this world
To broken to say goodbye
I let them carry you away
Couldn’t let you see me cry

These words I never said to you
Have kept me from living on
And so I release them at last
All this time after you’ve gone

I’m so sorry you were alone
Only strangers by your side
I should have held you till the end
Till the moment that you died

I should have whispered in your ear
Baby everything’s ok
I should have given one last kiss
As I watched you slip away

These words you’ll never get to hear
Cause I could not let you go
Will finally leave my broken heart
Because you deserved to know

I thank God for each day we shared
You were the light of my eye
My love for you will never fade
You’ll be with me till I die

I hope I’ll see you in heaven
Waiting by that rainbow stream
Yet if this cannot be I know
I’ll see you in every dream

And every night I’ll hear your voice
Hold you tight and kiss your face
And until morning light you’ll stay
Safe and loved in my embrace
