lyrics

they say the time will come
when my world will start to dim
and the memories I make
will no longer stay with me

they say the time will come
when my mind no longer thrives
and the thoughts of all I love
will fade away

but this moment I share with you
is all that’s real to me now
it’ll help me carry on
for the rest of my days

when the last of me is gone
take comfort in the still
what my mind may not remember
my heart always will

and when words no longer work
and frustration fills my eyes
your touch will be enough
to calm my soul

i am grateful for my life
and the love you’ve given me
it’s you who makes my world
and for now that’s all I need

and the love I have for you
will never fade away
if I can’t say it then
i want you to know now

when the last of me is gone
take comfort in the still
what my mind may not remember
my heart always will
