Strong arms that held me,
Pulled me back and slowed my pace
Smile that captured me,
Melted my decisions away and sparkled
Eyes that whispered, "I love you,"
Lied to my face and filled the void
The truth is but a passerby,
You cannot see what you have done,
Blown out the flame and disposed
Of the candle, never returning
Chairs rocking,
Tick tocking,
Going fast and
Never stopping,
Time is but a passerby,
It heals just as it wounds,
Faces blur around me,
Heavyness in my step,
Let's just leave each other alone,
That's what you said
Fingers that traced my every outline,
Brushed against my skin to please
Lips that kissed with sweet mystery,
Down my neck and beyond
Hands that comforted my weakness,
Smoothed my hair and wiped my tears
Love is but a passerby,
Flaming waves of passion
That die, dousted with forgiveness
And the pain that comes
As I heal without you.
