how many days that have passed
how many tears that have stained
so many days and nights
so many hugs squeezed tight
now forgotten, left sitting
now collecting dust, left rotten
go it may with more light than dark
go it may with more smiles than not
vow we did never to disappear
vow we did to love dear
no one will ever take your place
no one will ever fill with grace
allow my heart to pledge again
allow every tomorrow to come with hope
grow from all the growing pains
grow from letting go even though it pains
