My Tears Are Not of Loss

My tears are not of loss
But of time too quickly gone.
I miss our days together
Even while they're going on.

I savor odd, sweet moments
When you laugh or when you smile,
Nostalgic for your presence
Though you're with me all the while.

Strange how fantasy
Can wander in and out at will,
Looking back from somewhere
That is just beyond a hill.

And so when once you leave
You will not leave me alone,
For I will have you with me
Long after you are gone.
