Always

I will respect your wishes and... I will not call or write...
But always when the sun goes down... My heart will say good
night... And always when the day is done... And when the
stars appear ... I shall remember all the words ... You ever
whispered, dear...And I shall walk in loneliness ... Along
the silent sea ... And seek the ship that might have sailed ...
To bring you back to me ...I may not ever find your smile ...
Or hold your hand again ... But every image will be bright
... And beautiful as then ... And truly as I promised you ...
The moment that we met ... I will adore you always and ...
I never will forget.
