Will you remember me in that fading breeze?
The end of our dreams in a warm summer morn?
You swore you would keep me in your heart
Like the pressed forget-me-nots
I left by your window, for you to find
You said you kept them safe in a notebook
But it's already gathering cobwebs and dust
Lying alone in a corner of your room.
Will you think of me under a starlit sky?
We held hands through the lonely fireworks
Lighting up the desolate night
Smiling at the wind rustling through the leaves
Watching the dance of a thousand flickering lights.
Do you think of me when you pass the corner cafes?
We would recline with steaming cups of coffee
As I listened to you pouring your heart out, my love
Your dreams, hopes, frustrations and fears
Lending me a hand I needed to hold on to
And affection that wiped my tears.
Is our story reflected in the waning sunset
As the rays of crimson touch the horizon far away
Or is it washed away like castles on the sand
No trace of our painstaking efforts someday.
If I told you I missed you, with all my heart
How my soul aches for you at night
Lying alone and breathless, nobody to talk to
Trudging through a broken life without respite.
What was in me that fell so short?
I tried so hard to be worthy and strong
But all I can give you is heartache and truth
And human imperfections that feel so wrong.
Do you remember me when you listen to music
Because I said your voice was my most beloved tune
Or did you forget all the words I uttered
Did you stop loving me, all too soon?
Goodbye, my darling, I will hold you close
Even if that embrace feels like a tender breeze
Maybe you'll think of me when the tinkling wind chimes sway
But even if you don't, you're engraved in my heart
Even if you're gone at the starting of another day.
