Moments Away.....
Author: Clive B Ringshall


I spend all these moments alone
I sit and think of you
and how you have helped me survive

My heart now beats in tune with you my friend,
My moments are filled with the comfort of you,
If a tear should fall,
I know itís you who will be there to call.

I break away for a moment of my day
Even many miles away I feel you thinking of me,
I pass each flower in the garden,
Just to inhale their sweetness
Every breath reminds me of you
Within in
Hoping to absorb the lovely fragrance
Deep into my soul

I reach out and I touch you
I feel you holding my hand
You sweet lips upon my lips,
My heart beats faster than a running train,
Itís then I begin to miss,
As I know you feel the mist in my eyes
As my friend you know me,
As my friend you feel me near,
As things go wrong you never ask me why,
You feel my heart deep inside,
Itís a place you can always find,

You touch my heart as well as my soul
You touch my life and make me whole
You never question but its strength I receive,
Our love has grown and trust followed deep,

Without you in my life
I'd surely be lost
You give me direction,
Without you to call my friend,
You know my heart would cry out loud,
You give me inspiration,
You give me strength,

Every morning we say hello,
Each night we share our bed,
We talk about our day,
We remind how much we love,
To miss you as I do,
Iím reminded of our burning love,
So my friend itís with love Iíll say,
With out you I would be lost.
