often when two people fall in love,
One of them is forced to move away?
We can't convince our hearts that they must move;
In people love just doesn't work that way.
'Cause of all the love I feel for you,
Life will be an unrelenting wound.
Love will shadow everything I do.
Missing you, my heart will be marooned.
In time, of course, my feelings will adjust;
Such pain cannot forever be sustained.
Some visits, letters, phone calls will, I trust,
Yearnings quell, and grades must be maintained.
Oh, but I will miss you, miss you dearly!
Until hell ends, I'll be existing merely.
