Caroline

Everything I see reminds me of Caroline
People  on the beach
Waves breaking in time
Helps to clean the clutter in my mind
Leaves me alone with Caroline

A picture of a face frozen in time
I suffer over words they are hard to find
I cant tell you she is real
I cant tell you how I feel
All I know her name is Caroline

And I know the kind of damage this can do
Chasing after ghosts
Long since out of view
I can taste her lips
But I cannot find
My Caroline

The past can be recalled in many ways
Sometimes it is fleeting others go on for days and days
I gathered all the pieces I could find
Tried  to put back together my Caroline

Every word I say reminds me of Caroline
Pieces of a puzzle put together over time
I miss everything I left behind
When I started out to find my Caroline

And I know the kind of damage this can do
Chasing after ghosts
Long since out of view
I can taste her lips
But I cannot find
My Caroline
