Wishing You Were Somehow Here Again

カスパル・ダーヴィト・フリードリヒ 「雪の中の修道院の墓地」     
Caspar David Friedrich, Cloister Cemetery in the Snow.     

You were once my one companion ...
you were all that mattered ...
You were once a friend and father,
then my world was shattered.

Wishing you were somehow here again,
wishing you were somehow near.
Sometimes it seemed if I just dreamed,
somehow you would be here.

Wishing I could hear your voice again,
knowing that I never would.
Dreaming of you won't help me to do,
all that you dreamed I could!

Passing bells and sculpted angels,
cold and monumental.
Seem, for you, the wrong companions,
you were warm and gentle.

Too many years fighting back tears,
why can't the past just die!

Wishing you were somehow here again,
knowing we must say goodbye!
Try to forgive
Teach me to live!
Give me the strength to try!

No more memories
No more silent tears!
No more gazing across the wasted years!
Help me say goodbye ...
help me say goodbye!
