September Mourning

Verse 1
On a clear September Morning
You said good bye to me
You turned the key, you drove away
A thought occured to me
I'm truly blessed to have you here
to be here in my life
I could have run away from you
But you made me your wife

Verse 2
The world we built around us
Is a haven for the soul
A special place where we can live
In peace and in control
My love for you is endless
Beyond eternity
The joy that is within us
Shows in our family

Chorus
But today things turned out differently
This is our last good bye
I try my best to understand
To see a reason why
How could anyone be so hateful
No reason why it seems
Your time has come to leave this world
To live inside my dreams

Verse 3
I wish that I could call you
To say one last goodbye
There is so much I want to say
It's hopeless, yet I try
It won't be long I hear the sounds
My friends all cry with me
Will anyone remember you
And the price for being free

Chorus

Break

Verse 4
Late at night I'll look for you
You're waiting in my dreams
We'll be together once again
Like you never left, it seems
And in the dawn I'll go on living
Knowing that you're here
Beside me and inside of me
I'll hold you close, I'll hold you near

Chorus
