Rolleiflex

I didn't take a picture of you with my Rolleiflex.
I didn't steal a lock of your blonde hair.
I was quite content just to keep you in my head,
so all I had to do was stand and stare.

I tried my best to leave you
with some kind parting words,
but it turned out that it wasn't quite enough.

I didn't steal a lock of your blonde hair.
I don't need a keepsake for things I can't forget.
I just close my eyes and I am there.

but it turned out that it wasn't quite enough.

I tried, but it wasn't quite enough...
