The ticking of the clock has never bothered me before|
I never noticed time when you where here
And tell me Why does the night seem oh so long
As I lay here in the dark and shed a tear;
I know I must be strong as I promised you I would
I know you're looking down and holding my hand
But you'll forgive me if I dont show too much joy
This just isn't the way we had things planned
That day they broke the news to us was the worst I ever had
"I'm sorry" "Can we help?" " you're not alone"
In the months that followed all the new friends that we made
Sharing all the bad times and never a moan.
Until that sunday at 2.00am, I sadly felt you leave
I held you tight, "oh please don't go, just stay a little longer"
I held you for what seemed an eternity and more
But the one thing that made me feel stronger,
I imagined you at heaven's gate, how could they fail to let you in?
I know that you were destined to be there
And with you you took the complete store of my love
When I see you again we can share
The ticking of the clock has never bothered me before
I never noticed time when you were here
But now I count the hours, the days, the weeks,
Until that day when I will give a cheer
And run into your arms again and kiss you long and slow
And if the angels ask the reason for our joy
We will simply tell them it comes from long ago
