I guess I knew the time had come
That we woluld have to part.
That one would stay, and one would go
And leave a lonely heart.
I guess I knew you didn't hear
My whispered words of love.
With muffled sobs I spoke your name.
But your voice was stilled.
I guess I knew you couldn't feel
My pounding heart that day.
The touch, the kiss, the last embrace,
Before you went away.
I guess I knew you would't come
When the day was done.
That you would take another path
Into the setting sun.
But this I knew, our love was true
Each one for the other.
And all the joys and cares we shared--
