Every time the siren wails I think of you…

Every time the siren wails I think of you…
I think of how we played “sugar salt.”
I think of your smile.
I think of your unconditional love.

When I close my eyes I see your tears.
When I close my eyes I hear you in the night.
When I close my eyes I see your face.

I wish I had been brave.
I wish it weren’t so.
I wish you were mine.

I pray that you’ll never feel alone.
I pray that you’ll know him and he’ll know you.
I pray for you.

All day long I carry you, but I can’t give you peace.
So before I go to bed I lay you at his feet.
But one last thing before I go...
You're not the only one who knows...
