I Guess I Knew

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--
       Sustaining memories.
