Here In The Afterglow

It's too late for words unspoken,
Though I hate to face the truth
That you'll never really know
How much I love you.

Guess I just assumed you knew it,
That our love could never die;
Now I watch this candle flickering,
Wondering why.

You made the choice to go;
You took your life and left me
Here in the afterglow.

Where were the words
That I needed to say
To keep you from leaving,
To make you stay?
Oh, my Love––so far away;
Now I'll never know
Here in the afterglow....
