I still look at our picture when I'm feeling down
by   Snowflower

Well, years have passed since that horrid day you died 
and my life was changed. 
Friends still call to find out how I am.  I guess I'm ok.

I have realized you're not coming back.  
Now, I have memories of how things used to be 
and how love can disappear... like it did between you and me.

   I still look at our picture when I'm feeling down, 
   it still makes me smile seeing your hand in mine.  
   Even though it's just a trip down memory lane, 
   I still have our picture on the dresser 
   next to the bed we once shared.

I stopped by your grave just the other day  
it should be 20 years together for us 
but its been 18 years since you passed away.  

In my heart, you're still here beside me, 
helping me in life's choices, 
and moving me on... day by day.

   I still look at our picture when I'm feeling down, 
   it still makes me smile seeing your hand in mine.  
   Even though it's just a trip down memory lane,
   I have surpassed the heart ache and decided to move on.

I know you hear and you brought this angel to me, 
a man I can love... unselfishly.  
I see you have took it upon yourself to help me again 

to stay by my side and make sure I'm not alone. 
Now I know you can finally rest at peace 
knowing you have put my heart back together again.

   I still look at our picture when I'm feeling down, 
   it still makes me smile seeing your hand in mine.  
   Even though it's just a trip down memory lane,
   I take our picture out of the dresser 
   and think of how happy I now am.
