You've been gone so long and I miss you so.
There are so many things you took with you.
You're a part of my life that I can't let go.
I still see your face with its happy glow
but your voice is gone like the morning dew.
You've been gone so long and I miss you so.
There's a time for all seasons, that I know;
to live with loss is something we must do.
You're a part of my life that I can't let go,
whether it's winter ground covered in snow,
or summer days when the sky sparkles blue.
You've been gone so long and I miss you so.
Sometimes it doesn't seem that long ago
and the pain of missing you strikes anew.
You're a part of my life that I can't let go.
What I would give to hear you say hello,
to wile away the hours, just we two.
You've been gone so long and I miss you so.
You're a part of my life that I can't let go.
