Now You Are Only Memory
by Gert Strydom
With you I never did have
a thirteen year long war
and with all the heartache
and deceit I loved you even more.
I had never have to search for words
to work wonders for me
and in sincerity I loved you on and on
and now you are only memory
while our life together is gone
but still your bright smile stays in my mind
and you're yearning to be free
and I wonder if you are now really happy?
Life has set me on another course
and although the time we spent,
the years together seems wasted,
like water down the loo
maybe at times
I will want it in no other way
and it doesn't bother me
that someone else is loving you.
