Memory moves us past each other
Time is a ribbon without end
Love is the lesson we keep learning
Death but a moment we must spend

Last week as I made our lunch
We talked of yesterdays
I remember more than you
That happens lots these days
But how we laughed, I almost cried
And the afternoon flew by
As we sat on the patio sipping our drinks
And the sunlight began to die

Memory moves us past each other
Time is a ribbon without an end
Love is the lesson we keep learning
Death but a moment we must spend

And we try to give each other comfort
We try to hold off that dark night
Each of us careful of the other
Keeping our own fear out of sight

Ah, you know I've always loved you
And I know you've loved me too
So it's hard to watch you crumble
And forget all that you knew

Yesterday while I was driving
Sunlight streaming through the trees
Suddenly my heartache parted
And suddenly I felt at ease
You will love me all your life
And I will love you all of mine
That's the gift we give each other
That's the gift divine

Memory moves us past each other
Though time is a ribbon without an end
Love's still the lesson we keep learning
And death but a moment we must spend
