reflections of a lost lover

There’s so much more to say
I was going to tell you I still love you
but it doesn’t matter anyway
you have already gone away.

Hey, do you see me that day so long ago
lying quietly under the palm tree?
You were there rubbing your toes in the sand.
Today, it is my favorite memory.

I try and move on and there are women I meet
but none has yet made me complete.
You still own me.
My love for you is so bittersweet.

I gave up too much
and now I long for your touch.
I could tell you I still love you
but there’s nothing left of us.
