With the brushing of our shoulders
I lived a life with you
We had a son or daughter who had my eyes
And your laughter echoed after you

All of this in a brief stare
A fleeting glimpse of happiness shared
That made our bodies burn and shiver
As we passed each other, unaware

I am not to think
Of your face, of your name
For when I do, you are there
Lying next to another
I can only wonder...

"Laisse mon coeur vous abandonne
Depuis je suis encore jeune,"

    General Commentthe french part is suppose to be:
    let my heart abandon you
    since I am still young

    (the first line should be spellt: laisse mon coeur vous abandonne)

    General Commenti think this is beautiful
    especially the french
    moving on, while you still have the chance to find someone new
