Wishing You Near (Nick Alcantara)
I have come to realize that time is so dear,
When you are no longer here,
I cling to memories that bring you near,
If only I can touch you again,
Without bringing back the pain
feeling your presence,
That you are not really far away,
That would bring back the joy and magic,
Of being again together,
I know you are just a whisper away.
