Just for Tonight ...
Just for tonight, I'll remember you;
Go back in time to when love was new.
I'll let go of today, let memories flow;
reliving the feelings of times long ago.

Then, I'll meet with you, in the silent land,
And see you smile as I reach out my hand.
Just for awhile, your presence I'll feel,
Safe in your arms, pretending you're real.

I cannot stay long. So, it is with regret
That I whisper, "Goodbye," but never forget.
Though many years pass and keep us apart,
Each day that goes by, you're still in my heart.

And, when darkness falls and sleep beckons me,
I'll call out your name and hope that, maybe,
Just for tonight, in my dreams, you'll appear
And, when I awaken, I'll still feel you near.
