Every day is quickly passing,
Each one of them a blur,
But you are always on my mind,
Of that I am quite sure.

As surely as the wind will blow,
Each day will start anew,
As surely as the world will turn,
My thoughts will be of you.

How your eyes light up with laughter,
Warms deep within my soul,

Kindling the flame inside my heart,
No longer dust and coal.

I feel the fire, building, burning,
Chase the shades away,
It flares with such intensity,
I just want it to stay.

I close my eyes and still can feel,
Your breath upon my cheek,
Your gentle hands upon my skin,
The way you make me weak.

I long to have you here with me,
Together we would lay,
Please be the spark inside my heart,
I just want you to stay.
