Until the Petal Fell (circa June 1992)

I saw the light in the doorway

A chill crawled down my back

I felt my soul being touched

And knew you were there with me

You caressed my body

With your angelic fingers

Any fear I might have had

You banished with a kiss

And then you disappeared

Right before my eyes

My senses came back to me

I decided my imagination was getting the best of me

Until the petal fell

Until the petal fell

I convinced myself it wasn’t true

I believed you were gone forever

You, I’d never see again

Until the petal fell

Roses say on my dresser

One a day for you I vowed

In a way to comfort myself

From the loss of you I couldn’t take

Until the petal fell

Until the petal fell

I convinced myself it wasn’t true

I believed you were gone forever

You, I’d never see again

Until the petal fell

And until the petal fell

I had no strength to go on

I feared only poor memory would remain

Where thoughts of you should exist

Until the petal fell

I didn’t realize you

Were right in my heart

Forever and eternity

And your happiness burst through me

Even after the petal fell
