In the still of the night I watch you, the quiet is so complete.
It picks me up and surrounds me... almost deafening me.

The wind passes quickly beside me... echoing my fears tonight.
It flirts with the occupants around me... on this cold December night.

To you I know it's silent... It's only a chilly... wind.
The whisper is lost forever... I should be so thick skinned.

The water along the shoreline,
I know you watch from the bench.
It moves in a forever whisper...
It speaks to me in French...

How many times have we sat there, just you and me all alone?
Talking about our tomorrows, when you will be in god's dial-up zone.

I watch you now I am sorrowed...I realize your time has arrived.
We had such little time together; we've lost an entire life time.

Silence greets your ears in enjoyment.
I know God is waiting for you... on the other side of forever, he's holding out his hands to guide you.

In the still of the night I watch you, the quiet is so complete.
It picks me up and surrounds me....almost deafening me.....

I love you......(fading whisper)........I love you.......
