Heaven And Earth Apart

Written by: Sandra Nguyen 

I watched you from a distance

My heart ached to be seen by you

We danced and laughed

Never knew your days were due


I was only a little girl

When our path crossed

Little did I know

I was bounced and tossed


Between sorrow and grief

When you left this life

Concealed my tears

When the pain cut me like a knife


You were the boy next door

And stayed only for a moment brief

A heart full of dreams

Stolen by the dark thief


I continued to live

Heaven and earth apart

But sadness never left me

The day I buried a young heart
