22 Jan Petrie
When I remember you, I remember the first time we met.
I look back at our time together with absolutely no regret.
When I remember you, I remember the first time I looked into your eyes.
I couldn’t believe my luck; I thought I had won first prize.
When I remember you, I remember when you stole my heart.
I knew from that first moment they could never keep us apart.
When I remember you, I remember our favourite song,
But somehow it sounds different without you humming along.
When I remember you, I always shed a tear
For every moment we had together and every happy moment.
When I remember you, I miss our walks alone at night,
Stars in the sky, hand in hand, we surely were a sight.
When I remember you and the love we always shared,
Of life without you at my side, no way was I prepared,
So now when I remember you, my love, I remember mostly this…
I’ll see you soon in paradise, and together we’ll reminisce.
Timothy Halliday. “When I Remember You.”
