I watched you go

You loved me so much
That you gave me the pain…
The pain that I needed
To go beyond myself

You did it, my darling
As you said you would
Before we were born.
How I love you for that

Do you remember
Those vows that we made?
Sometimes we forget
Because the dance is too dizzy

You chose sacrifice 
The ace in the pack
No half measures, none…
No Queen of Hearts for you

It’s incredible 
What you have accomplished!
I’m full of wonder and awe 
All over again!

You live like a lion
And love like an angel
Cleverly concealed
Behind your nervous glance

Now you look through me
As if I’m not there
And, do you know…
Perhaps I’m not
