'I remember when you last were here,
and all the times that were so dear.
When you held me in your loving arms,
controlled my world with all your charms.
I remember what you did to me,
I'll remember for eternity
the way you swept me off my feet,
the way you made my life complete.
I remember sharing all we had,
be it good or be it sad.
You kept the faith and fought the fight,
you kept me warm on that last night.
And now alas you are no more
than salvage on some foreign shore.
I cry today, I'll cry tomorrow,
and wait in vain amidst my sorrow.
