Shadows of Love

Why oh why does my silly heart behave the way it does
It aches for you despite not getting a backward glance
The pain of  lost love is often more than a lost life can be

My heart yearns for the time we spent, the memories we made
Every time I think of us, my heart does this little dance
Why oh why does my silly heart behave the way it does

The smiles, the love, the hugs and the kisses, all refuse to fade
The parting words, the lonely nights, a cruel trick of chance
The pain of  lost love is often more  than a lost life can be

Your smiling face, your loving look, like sunshine in a glade
Still work their magic as the memories take me into a trance
Why oh why does my silly heart behave the way it does

You and me never became us, never have I been so dismayed
The poignancy never lost, the wistfulness  ever a lance
The pain of  lost love is often more  than a lost life can be

I attempt to smile as my life lies unraveled and then remade
I laugh, I cry, I go on, I live, nay, I exist, in a life gone askance
Why oh why does my silly heart behave the way it does
The pain of  lost love is often more  than a lost life can be
