You look to me and I to Him,
I wonder bout which way I have been.
I see your silent smile, reflecting from the window as a blur of trees flashing,
I want to forever stay but this time is passing.
I feel within,
Every tear, every joy,
Every moment that brought you here,
I hold you near and wonder bout it all,
how someone as I, have to hold, this all.
As I leave for the day, you tackle, play, hug and won’t let go,
I want to stay but work must pay,
I slowly push away, leave for the day,
wondering bout, when you won’t beg for me to stay.
I see your silent smile, from the window flashing,
I want to forever stay, but these bills must pay,
Another day I say, another day he wished,
another day may never be accomplished.
I see your silent smile, from the window flashing.
I want to forever stay,
So I looked the other way and stopped for the day,
I took your hand and you took my heart,
We roamed about natures part,
In a creek you splashed, played then fell asleep,
I noticed a maple leaf, weightless in the air, simply floating.
If I may, I would like to stay, if even for a moment, I pray forever.
