Within These Walls

Within these walls

Within these walls, the laughter fades
With every picture packed away
And only tears are left behind
A memory of another life,
I close my eyes and drift away
And journey back to that first day
So many years I never knew
What love I'd find, what dreams came true,
I walk with tears, from room to room
You seem to breathe, I'm part of you

So part of me I leave behind
Broken as I say goodbye
To voices calling from the past
Reminding me that love was here
So far away, but yet so clear
Each moment I would make it last
For now I know the moments near
So As I turn to close the door
I say to you with love and warmth
One last thing before I go
I thank you for this loving home
