The Moment That You Left on August 16, 1986.

The moment that you left
My heart spilt in two
One side filled with memories
The other side died with you.

I often lay awake at night
When the world is fast asleep
And take a walk down memory lane
With tears upon my cheek.

Remembering you is easy
I do it everyday
But missing you is a heartache
That never goes away.

I hold you tightly within my heart
And there you will remain
As my life goes on without you

But will never be the same
