I Remember

I remember a time when you cherished me,
When you held me in your arms so lovingly,
When the touch of your hands, the love in your eyes,
And the words from your lips filled my soul.

My dreams all came true,
The moment I knew,
That the rest of my life,
Would be spent with you.
Now those hands cause such pain,
And the hate in your eyes,
And your words filled with anger remain.

When and why, did you start to break my heart,
My love for you had never changed;
Steps I once longed to hear,
Bring me nothing but fear,
Now all I remember is pain.
