Reverberating Solitude

It has been a long time since I've opened my MusicMatch Jukebox to play my mp3s, largely due to the fact that MM Jukebox isn't the most efficient program in the world, despite it having almost everyone one could ask for in a player. Linda, Salonga, Anthony, Colm…how I've missed you.
When I look at you
what I always see
is the face of someone else
who once belonged to me.
Still I hear him laugh
even though that melody plays on
he's gone.
When I look at you
he is standing there
I can almost breathe him in
like summer in the air.
Why do you smile his smile?
That heaven I've forgotten eases through
in you.
If you could look at me once more
with all the love you felt before
If you and I could only dance into the past
and find that love we knew
I'd never take my eyes away from you!
When I look at you
he is touching me
I would reach for him
but who can hold a memory?
And love isn't everything
this moonlight on the bed
will melt away….someday.
For you were once that someone
who I followed like a star
then suddenly you changed
and now I don't know who you are.
Or could it be?
That I never really knew you from the start?
Did I create a dream?
Was he a fantasy?
Even a memory is paradise
for all the fools like me!
Now remembering is all that I can do.
Because I miss him so
When I look at you.
