I know the pain of saying goodbye
And losing a part of me in the wind.
I know the gaping hole in my heart—
Which nothing can fill.

I know the meaning of a final goodbye
And the unbridgeable gap between us.
All the tears and all the weeping
Cannot melt a heart that is frozen.

Before the dreaded day of parting,
Don’t let anything stand in between,
Not a cloud of misunderstanding
Not a gesture of rejection.

While we’re still alive and together,
I just want to hug you and say how much I care.
How I long to feel the summer in your heart
Without the fence of winter’s clothing.

There is a time to be together,
There is a time of separation,
But life can still full of meaning
When love fills the space in between.
