FOREVER WITH ME

I found our picture from forgotten years ago
when love and happiness was all we knew
we looked like we were blessed by the hands of forever
but here I am now reminiscent over our dusty picture

tears flood my sad face for my brain is storming with sensitive memories
I can still hear the sound of terror when that car drove you to an early grave
and I’ll never forget that driver’s alcoholic face
I just wish that he…

life goes on and so I have to let you go
but I’ll keep this picture forever with me
