I sipped my coffee as you walked beside me.
It was 5am and the dawn was behind me
But the only vision I could see was you
As you glided along, admiring the view
Of the park as if you were new to this town.
At that moment, my life turned upside down
Because everything had changed. Finally, my heart
Was full of love. This was my new start.
You held my hand and I just couldn’t stop
The smile that lit up my face as I dropped
My coffee all over the pavement, then you
Laughed until your sides split in two
And now, at the end, as I sit by the side
Of the bed where you, my first love, had died,
I remember that coffee. I remember that dawn.
I remember that nothing is ever really gone.
