My Heart Remembers/May Song Challenge

My heart still remembers
The days of our youth
When searching for answers
We stumbled on truth
We were meant for each other
As night into day
And you swore to be true
Promising never to stray
We looked to the future
So young and so bold
Thinking we knew
How the years would unfold

Today we said our last goodbyes
I whispered I love you,
As I closed your eyes
Our journey is over
I’m alone and bereft
The memory of you
Is all I have left

We stood before God
With stars in our eyes
Never thinking one day
We’d say our goodbyes
I see you standing there
Handsome and young
Knowing our future
Had just begun
We lived our lives
As though we were one
Sharing trouble and heartbreak
With days in the sun

Today we said our last goodbyes
I whispered I love you,
As I closed your eyes
Our journey is over
I’m alone and bereft
The memory of you
Is all I have left
But my heart overflows
My heart fills with joy
Knowing our love
Even death can’t destroy

Sad Song
A very sad love song. I would have Don McLean sing this and be recorded back to back with his song Empty Chairs.

I didn't know you have this challenge, May Song? This is the third I saw, I saw Pen's and Tina's. You three write such beautiful lyrics.

As I read this I wondered if your memory of your beloved is usually the young man or the older one. My dad never saw my mom as old .. he always remembered the first time he saw her and how he felt while my mom had a timely vision of the one she loved.

Bea's song
I haven't been able to be around much and as usual when I take a look at my dear Bea's work I smile at the word dexterity and grace. There wouldn't be a dry eye in the house after this one was sung.

Love is blind Pen.'s funny, but now that you've mentioned it...I think of him in both contexts.

I always remember our wedding day...he was beyond handsome, but it was his smile and humor that always got to me...even when I was angry with him...he'd grin, and I was done for!! (My two sons have that too!) My daughter is the serious one.

But when he was frail and ill...even in his last days...he was still beautiful to me!

My favorite challenge, Ken!
Thanks Ken...this I believe, is my favorite of all the challenges...I could truly relate to it and unabashedly, open up my heart to it...I could be as sappy as I apologies!

Hope your parents as feeling better! You're a good son to them!
