Holding Shadows

It has been more than a year
I didn’t see your face
and if I saw it clear
it was over in those days
the last time when I saw you
you waved at me smiling
I thought I should let you go
but I cannot help dialing … your number
even when you don’t answer
I do not wish to surrender
and there is only thing that makes me wonder

Should I give up or should I keep on holding shadows?
What if you wish to come back?
or will it make no difference?
Is it already the end?
Should I let you go?
or keep on holding shadows?

I lived a lifetime with you
but died many more
and if you hear me crying
you’ll cry too I’m sure
these arms won’t fit anywhere
it’s a frame made just for you
every time when I think to let you go
I cannot help waiting little further
even when you don’t answer
I do not wish to surrender
and there is only thing that makes me wonder

Should I give up or should I keep on holding shadows?
What if you wish to come back?
or will it make no difference?
Is it already the end?
Should I let you go?
or keep on holding shadows?

I’ve believed
everything has a conclusion
the magic that we had
cannot end in confusion
but there is this thing too:
nothing happens what we assume
so it makes me wonder
Should I give up or should I keep on holding shadows?
What if you wish to come back?
or will it make no difference?
Is it already the end?
Should I let you go?
or keep on holding shadows?

    Beautiful and so expressive. I like the repetition. I’m sure many people can relate to the pain.
