Standing there on the other side,
I kept on waving my hand
You were moving back,
For another year I had to wait –
The waiting doesn’t hurt me
But staying miles apart does.
Initially I knew it would be difficult,
Now the distance seems unbearable;
No way do I think I can stay away
Yet every morn your voice calms my mind –
Years have made me stronger
I know I can meet the ends and you can too
Just love me the way you always do,
And I promise my love never to forget you.
