Memory

Three thirty in the morning
Woke up to go take a piss
Then went to the front room
Sat on the couch and wrote this

Rain comes down hard outside
I hear wind slamming the windows
I decided to start up some coffee
I should wash some dirty clothes

And my dog is snoring like I do
I wonder if I could trust again
With an unspoken truth
Things you never knew
And I take some time to
Scroll through your Instagram
So I can see you smiling again
And I can remember when

We were walking out by the ocean
Under the sky so bright with stars
Making small talk about the future
Our wounds that became our scars
You took my hand, gazed into my eyes
It was the first time you kissed me
As the sparkling waves were crashing
I was alive again, feeling so free
But now you’ve gone to a place
Where I can’t experience or be
My  heart breaks for our children
Cause all you are now is a memory
All you are to us now is a memory

One of them wakes at five o’ clock
Gets a glass of milk and sits down
She shares about a weird dream
Where there was a circus clown

It was fine at first and  it turned
To a nightmare, then she awoke
I can’t comfort her like you did
With me a few short years ago

We were walking out by the ocean
Under the sky so bright with stars
Making small talk about the future
Our wounds that became our scars
You took my hand, gazed into my eyes
It was the first time you kissed me
As the sparkling waves were crashing
I was alive again, feeling so free
But now you’ve gone to a place
Where I can’t experience or be
My  heart breaks for our children
Cause all you are now is a memory
All you are to us now is a memory
All you are to us now is a memory
All you are to us  now is a memory
