If only I had known back then,
That life was so short and sweet.
I’d have stayed awake all night long,
And watched my darling sleep.

I’d have spent more time with her,
As the days and years rolled by.
This girl I love so very much,
Was the apple of my eye.

We were together constantly,
Absorbed with one another.
We were close, just not enough,
To really know each other.

Now I have great memories,
Of a life so short and sweet.
I’ll cherish them with all my heart,
‘Til once again we meet.
