Time

In memory of Suzanna

When the petals have fallen from the last flowers I bought you
And the Autumn leaves have been blown away by the wind
All that is left is the love that we had
And it will last in my heart for all time

When the smell has gone from the clothes you have left
And the images have started to fade from my mind
The love that you left in my heart will remain
And will be there for the rest of my time

I stood alongside you, protected you
I fought, fought for your life
This I could not save you from
And we both had ran out of time

I watched as you disintegrated
Helpless as you became dust
And now the dust lies beneath this land
So that you can finally rest

And though I leave your ashes here
Seven hundred miles from home
You will be with me forever
Until all my days are done
