September

I called  to tell you that I miss you
And I want to be there with you
But I guess there are some things I can’t control

So don’t wait up for me
I’ll see you when you sleep
It’s so hard to have to leave when
I was so close to coming home

If you dream then dream of me
It may break your heart, but you’ll be all right
Cuz I’ll be waiting for you
And I will see you soon

Don’t forget me come tomorrow
At least I’m not one of those
Who never got a chance to say goodbye

It’s so hard to end like this
With only words to say the things that
I could never say in a thousand lifetimes

If you dream then dream of me
It may break your heart, but you’ll be all right
Cuz I’ll be waiting for you
And I will see you soon

**
The days keep passing by
Though it feels like it has been so long
The lights you kept on
I have never even turned them off
I can’t believe it
You won’t be in my arms again
Don’t ask me to dream
Cuz I can’t sleep without you
**

If you dream then dream of me
It may break your heart, but you’ll be all right
Cuz I’ll be waiting for you
And I will see you soon

edit: This is a song I wrote in my very early 20’s or so, in response to reading this about a passenger on Flight 175, on September 11th.
